Class Research Orientations

The librarians at WNC are available to provide classroom orientations on general and/or subject specific research. Generally lasting one typical class period (1 hour 15 minutes), instructional sessions can be tailored to a specific subject and/or research project, or we can provide generalized research instruction.

If you would like to schedule a librarian for a classroom orientation, please submit a group instruction request form; please note that we do require a minimum of one week notice. For more information, please contact the library desk at 775-445-3229.

Library Research Assignments

The librarians have prepared a useful library research assignment for any topic which faculty may use to help their students get started on their research papers. Using their own research topic, it asks the students to find a book, encyclopedia, magazine, and newspaper article, as well as a high quality web site, on their topic using library resources.
