Library Instruction

Open Sessions

Throughout the year, librarians offer walk-in sessions on various research tools and databases.

Ask a Librarian if you would like to request a class on a particular topic or tool.

No advance registration is required though registering in advance helps us better plan sessions.

See below for upcoming open classes, or view the Libraries' Room Calendar for all classes.

EndNote -- Citation Manager

3:00pm - 4:00pm
Mullins Library, Room 102

Do you have to cite sources for your paper, thesis or dissertation? Attend this session to learn how to manage your references using EndNote Basic on the Web. In this session you will learn how to export references from databases (such as Web of Knowledge, PsycINFO, PubMed, SciFinder, Biological Abstracts, Compendex, CAB Abstracts, America History and Life, Science Direct, etc.), import them into EndNote Basic and automatically format them to create your bibliography. You will also be able to use the references you have saved in your folders to 'Cite While You Write' and produce your formatted term paper or thesis/dissertation in MS Word

University Classes

Library instruction classes at Mullins Library are offered to University students at the request of class instructors, and as the limits of time and available librarians and classrooms permit. Please call at least one week in advance to schedule; more time is preferable.

It is important that the students have received an assignment that requires library research when they come to the library instruction class; this improves their attention to and retention of the information.

Undergraduate classes in a specific field and graduate-level classes are scheduled with the Subject Specialist Librarians. General orientation classes are scheduled by email.

High School Classes

For more information about scheduling high school classes for library instruction and library research, see the Guidelines for Visits by Off-campus Groups.

Research Consultations

For individual research consultations with a librarian, contact the subject specialist librarian, call the Reference Desk at 479-575-6645, toll-free 866-818-8115, or email Consultations usually take an hour and are tailored to your specific research needs.
