NC Wesleyan's statement of purpose says: "Instruction emphasizes critical thinking, analytical reasoning, reading, writing, speaking, informed decision-making, and information skills."
As part of its mission, the Library actively participates in helping our students develop critical thinking, informed decision-making, and information skills. We provide instruction that will enable students to find, evaluate, and effectively use the information for the rest of their lives.
We encourage instructors to request library instruction sessions for their students, and to make use of library staff, facilities, and resources to support their classes and assignments.
Library Instruction Sessions
Librarians are happy to provide library sessions and/or resources that address specific information needs within your course. If you have a project that requires any research, we would love to help. We can provide virtual sessions for any of the satellite campuses.
Note: While the school is teaching all classes remotely, as we will not be offering in-person library instruction, all library instruction services will be virtual, and can be in the form of a custom LibGuide, narrated video walkthroughs, or live virtual session.

Librarians use LibGuides to build custom course pages for classes with research assignments. Librarians will build these guides as a permanent jumping-off point for research within your class and can do so whether we are invited to teach or not. If you believe your students could benefit from a research portal, just contact a librarian or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Library research consultations are available for faculty, individual students, or study groups and typically last between 30 minutes and an hour. Faculty may request research consultations for their own research or to discuss library resource needs for their students, specific course assignments, or group projects, Research consultation hours are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm and Friday, 8:00 am - 1:00 pm or at other times by request.
