Instruction numbers are up! The Library is breaking its own record at every turn. Spring 2015 saw the most sessions and the biggest reach since Spring 2008. Reach is the aggregate number of students in all classes that the Library provided instruction for in a given semester. Compared to Spring 2013, Spring 2015 represented a 66% increase in the number of sessions and a 44% increase in reach.

In Summer 2015 we doubled our summer sessions, going from 3 in Summer 2014 to 6 in Summer 2015. Reach for Summer increased 141%! It went from 24 students in Summer 2014 to 58 in Summer 2015!

Fall 2014, the last Fall semester for which numbers are available, we saw the most sessions we've seen since we've been keeping statistics. A 91% increase in sessions from Fall 2012 and a 69% increase in reach.

Greensboro College Librarians provide course-related library instruction upon request. This instruction focuses on helping students learn information-seeking and evaluation skills relevant to a particular course. Librarians provide instruction in the Library Computer Lab or in the classroom where a course is located. Faculty and students may meet with Librarians individually for assistance in exploring Library resources and improving their information-seeking skills.

How can the Library help my students? The Library staff can help your students with the following and much, much more:

  • general use of the Library and what the Library offers
