Information Literacy Instruction for Online Learning

  • Our librarians are available to teach library instruction sessions online. We will work with you to determine the best online delivery method (synchronous, asynchronous, or a hybrid) for you and your students. Please email Brandy Horne ( for more information or request instruction here

Librarians are ready to help by teaching online classes on:

-Exploring databases and catalogs
-The research process and research strategies
-Source evaluation
-Citation styles, including APA, ASA, CSE/CBE, MLA and Chicago Styles
-Zotero and Endnote
-Avoiding plagiarism and Turnitin
-Finding government information
-Finding primary sources and archival materials

Other information literacy topics and ideas are always open for discussion with the library faculty.

  • Course guides:
  • Course guides are librarian-created web guides catered to the specific information needs of your course assignments. Course guides can be created as a compliment to synchronous library instruction or serve to support asynchronous library instruction. Please note that requests for course guides must be made well in advance, as they take time to create. For more information on course guides, please contact Brandy Horne (
  • Check out a sample course guide here.

The Gregg-Graniteville Library has a selection of video tutorials and existing instruction resources available to support online learning. These resources range from style-specific citation support to troubleshooting off-campus logins. 

Feel free to link to individual resources in your course materials. If you have any special tutorial requests, please contact Brandy Horne (
