Course-integrated instruction is available for all undergraduate and graduate courses.
Classes are often tailored to provide research skills to meet the objectives to a
particular research assignment, but can sometimes provide a general introduction to
the Libraries' services, the Libraries online catalog and periodical databases, research
strategies, and sources relevant to specific disciplines.
Fill out the Library Instruction Request Form or contact your subject librarian to get started.
Library instruction sessions are available for campus and SUNY programs such as Discovery,
Scholars, EOP, ESL, and Empire College. Sessions can also be tailored for Binghamton
University offices and staff, and sessions for individuals or small groups of faculty,
students, or staff on getting started with their research and using the library catalog

Individualized sessions in specialized resources are available from your subject librarian.
The Libraries offers a series of quick three minute screen casts that demonstrate
how to use various types of library services, databases and research tools.
In addition, a suite of eight interactive online tutorials that take between fifteen
to forty five minutes each to complete. The topics covered are evaluating resources,
academic honesty, citing sources, finding books and articles, keeping current, using
social media wisely, and using different publication types.
More information can be found on the Library Tutorials page.
At the beginning of the fall semester, library tours of the Bartle and Science Libraries
are offered to graduate, transfer, and international students to introduce them to
the University Libraries' services and resources.
Tour information is provided to students at their orientation sessions.
