Instructing students on how to use the library and the databases in one setting, especially when there is only fifty minutes, can be overwhelming for the students and instructor. This session covers tips that can be used in the interview process with the professor, creating a flipped classroom, or blended instruction opportunities to enhance the learning process (including pre- or post-session), as well as demonstrating guides for assisting students in database searching techniques. The session ends with ways to get buy-in from professors about tutorials and guides used outside the lessons.
