Library Lectures

The library offers library lectures to classes that come to the library. These 30 to 50 minute lectures cover general to specific information on using library and information resources for class assignments.

Faculty may submit a Lecture Request online or contact Erin Gratz at x21246 or egratz@cccd.edu for further assistance.

When making a request, please give 48 hours notice prior to your preferred lecture time. Exceptions may be made for extreme emergencies, based upon librarian availability. In such cases, a generalized lecture will be given. Thank you for your consideration.

Are you interested in having a library lecture for your classes, but you've moved your classes online?  There are options for you.  We offer online lectures, librarians being embedded in Canvas courses, or you can simply introduce this guide to your students along with how to access the chat with a librarian feature.  See the guide for more information.
