The David O. McKay Library offers information literacy instruction in developing the skills needed to locate, analyze, and evaluate information. Our classroom in the McKay Library can accomodate classes with a maximum of 30 students. For larger classes, a librarian can come to your classroom.




In addition to face-to-face instruction, we can support your on-campus, online, or blended class through a variety of methods. If you would help with any of the following services, please contact your Subject Librarian.

  • Research Guides
    Research Guides provide links to selected library sources, videos, and other databases for a specific class or subject area.


  • Instructional Tutorials
    Request a tutorial for your students that instructs them on steps in the research process or library resources.
  • Embedded Course Chat Widget
    Have the library chat widget embedded in your course and give students direct access to library help without leaving the course.
  • Meet with a Librarian
    Your students can make individual or group appointments with a librarian to help them develop a search strategy, choose the best databases, locate both popular and scholarly or peer-reviewed sources, and give them search tips.
