Welcome to the Columbus Technical College Library: Library Orientation

Library Orientation courses are designed to provide your students with an introduction to Library resources as well as a guide to online research.

Students will learn about in house Library resources such as books and journals. Students will be instructed on how to use online resources, including databases within GALILEO to discover better resources for their assignments. Librarians can customize to your particular assignment, subjects, reference format, and preferred databases with proper notification.

Orientations are typically last about one hour and are primarily taught on the second floor of the Library in lab L702. Your class may stay in the lab for the duration of course period if desired. If taking your students to the Library is not possible, we will be happy to come to your classroom to instruct your students provided your class room has the proper facilities. This method requires a computer and a projected display of the screen.

Orientations are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. We cannot guarantee the availability of your preferred time and date. A Librarian will contact you to confirm your orientation or to reschedule one based on a time that works for both parties.
