The Ryerson & Burnham Libraries offer topic driven and general library orientations for SAIC graduate and undergraduate classes. A librarian works directly with the instructor to structure the sessions in a way most appropriate for the course.
A typical session lasts 1.5 hours and includes an introduction to the Libraries and instruction in searching the Libraries’ catalog and other pertinent online resources. The librarian working with the class will also bring out items from the collection that relate to the focus of the class.
Examples of library instruction sessions include:
A general library introduction and tour of the Reading Room (includes an overview of the library’s print and online resources)
A show and tell session that focuses on specific materials related to a course topic or assignment
A research-based instruction session that demonstrates online tools and print resources related to a course topic or assignment
The Libraries also offer instruction sessions for classes not affiliated with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago on a case-by-case basis.
