Request Specialized Library Instruction

SDSU Librarians offer specialized library instruction. These instruction sessions are intended for upper discipline courses such as courses in the upper 200s - 700s.

Our Specialized Library Instruction builds off what is taught earlier to helps students develop essential skills related to their discipline and other related areas.
