Learning at ZSR

Librarians at ZSR Library teach over a thousand students each year. We teach students through one-shot sessions in academic classes, in workshops, when embedded in classes across campus, or in our own information literacy courses.

We also offer several self-help instructional opportunities designed by librarians to help you learn how to use our website and resources. Of course, if you need anything, we’re here to help. Just ask!
