CCNY Librarians teach a variety of types of instruction sessions. All library classes tailored to meet the needs of your students in support of their research assignment. Library classes are held in computer labs and include hands-on and interactive time so that students will have time to practice what is taught in class with feedback from librarian.

Examples of the types of classes CCNY Libraries offer include:

  • Library Services and Research Basics: 75 minute introduction to City College Library collection and services, and how to search for books and articles.
  • Subject Databases: 75 minute class on how to search subject-specific databases.
  • Specialized class: 75 minute class that address specialized library assignments, a specific database, or a unique resource.
