Library Instruction Services for Faculty: Asynchronous Instruction

Asynchronous Library Instruction for all types of learners

In addition to synchronous in-person or Zoom sessions, IUP Libraries is committed to providing high quality library instruction services for asynchronous delivery.  Library instruction can be provided for your students using a variety of media and platforms. 


Videos and Tutorials

The IUP Libraries maintain a large collection of instructional videos and tutorials designed to teach students information literacy skills and concepts.  These resources can be easily linked in your course, in a PowerPoint, or sent to a student via email. 

Topics include:

  • Identifying peer reviewed material
  • Plagiarism
  • Topic development
  • Using databases
  • Finding resources for research
  • Search techniques
  • Citation management
  • Subject specific resources
  • And more!

Browse the collection at the library instructional resources website.


Customized Research Guides

Librarians can design interactive online research guides that provide instruction through text, images, and video and offer options for formative and summative assessment. Guides can be accessed by your students anytime they need help. Check out an example from a recent Communications Media course.
