Library Instruction

The UT Libraries are dedicated partners in student and faculty success. Each year, we reach more than 22,000 learners, ranging from pre-college through graduate populations. Librarians are committed to meeting students and faculty where you are and to fostering intellectual curiosity, creativity, and lifelong information literacy.

The Libraries offer expertise, resources, and teaching tools to support in person, online, and hybrid instruction. Explore the options below to learn more about our offerings.

Librarians lead sessions about information literacy concepts such as strategic searching, information creation and evaluation, and research as a process. Our Studio and Scholars Collaborative teams offer specialized instruction on media literacy topics and technology-based assignments, and Subject Librarians provide discipline-based research sessions. Special Collections librarians can introduce you to primary sources and archival materials, including digital collections.
