Library Orientations: Let the Librarian Teach

Library Orientation Request Form

Use the above link to schedule customized library orientations for your classes. We use your specific assignment when presenting the recommended databases and/or library catalog.

Your students will be shown:

. the organization of the Chabot College Library

. how to find books using the online catalog (OPAC)

. how to select an appropriate database

. how to best formulate searches using basic boolean logic

. how to evaluate websites

. how to evaluate the sources they have selected

. how to cite their the sources


In order to give librarians enough time to prepare we request that you schedule a library orientation as early as possible in the semester, but at least one week in advance.
