What is Librarian in the Classroom?

The LIC program provides the faculty with additional support for their curricular needs. Qualified reference librarians are available to teach research skills, either at a general level or on specialized legal topics, to classes or seminar groups. In addition, library staff can provide tours of the library for individual classes.  The program is currently coordinated by Kristina Martinez in the Reference Department.

To schedule a librarian session in your classroom:

  • Contact Kristina Martinez at least two weeks prior to the class.
  • Please provide as much detail as possible regarding the content to be covered in class.
  • If relevant, provided topics for assigned student papers or a copy of the course syllabus.
