|ENG130||1 full class period||For what may be a student's first college research paper, an interactive library session moving from research topic formation to search strategy, and exploration of general library databases to access research materials|
|MKT322||1 full class period||Assuming some previous library research experience, session organized around in-depth exploration of specialized resources for a research project|
|PSY225||2 full class periods||For a research methods class: 1st session providing instruction and learning activities in specialized resources; 2nd session providing independent research time for students with professor and librarian support|
