Library Guide for EN 102 Instructors: Start Here

Information about planning library instruction for your class

Welcome to the course guide for EN 102 Instructors!

This guide is full of resources and information to help you integrate library resources and information literacy into your EN102 class. Have ideas how to make it better or questions that aren't addressed here? Just let me know!

Information in this guide is relevant to EN 103 and 104 classes as well; we offer the same standardized options for all three courses. Please email Sara Whitver ( if you have something else in mind that is tailored more specifically to 103 or 104, and we'll work together to meet the needs of your students!

If you are teaching EN 101 and have something library related in mind, you are welcome to email me as well, and we will work together to provide your students with a learning experience that meets the needs of your course.


EN102 Guides for Students

COVID 19 Information

We are accepting requests for in person, synchronous online, and learning module instruction sessions for EN 102. As we strive to increase student interaction during the spring semester, we are also offering options for face to face instruction, even if you might be teaching your class online. 


Options for instruction are as follows:

  • I want to bring my class to the library (in person instruction)
  • I want a librarian to come to my classroom  (in person)
  • I want a librarian to conduct library instruction via zoom (live online)
  • I want to use the EN 102 Library Instruction Learning Modules instead of having live instruction (asynchronous online)
  • I'd like to offer my online students the opportunity to come to an in person workshop
  • I'd like a combination of the options above

We are here to meet the needs of your students, so don't be afraid to reach out to us and propose an idea that you have to support your students as they practice the research skills they need for their EN 102 assignments.

Please encourage your students to come to the information desk on the first floor of Gorgas for help if they need it, to click on the Ask A Librarian tab on our website, or to send us a text message.
