The library instructional program teaches a one-unit course, both online and face-to-face, that emphasizes instruction in the areas of information literacy. There are over 900 students enrolled per semester, and faculty librarians teach all classes. In addition, both libraries maintain reference services that are staffed by faculty librarians. These services include day, evening, weekend, and extended hour shifts.
