Orientations

Library Orientations

Schedule a general library orientation or one that can be tailored to your class research assignment or to you student organization.

  • Librarians can provide a Zoom link, or we can join your class link.
  • A librarian can come to your classroom to present the orientation.
  • Orientations will not take place in the library at this time (due to COVID).

Request an Orientation

Download and fill out the Library Orientation Request form and email it to refdesk@valleycollege.edu:

See the Essential Library Info box to contact the Reference Desk via Zoom, email, or phone.

A librarian will confirm the date and time via email.

Further Information

  • Orientations can be tailored to your research assignment.
  • Orientations are about an hour and include time for student questions.
  • We can join you at your class Zoom link or provide one.
  • All orientations are recorded. Orientation recordings will be deleted at the end of each semester.

Policies for Faculty

  • Submit your request at least one week prior to the orientation date.
  • Attend the entire session with your class.
  • Provide all the requested information in the form, so we may better prepare for your session.
  • Please email your roster to the Library Director (rhastings@valleycollege.edu): Each year we work with our Institutional Research office to measure and report the success rates of students who use our library services and resources. To help us in that effort, we ask that you email a PDF of your class roster on or before the day we meet with your class. Only student ID numbers are reported, and no other information is ever shared. Thank you for helping us in this important effort, and thanks again for partnering with us to help your students succeed.
