Research & Instruction Services

What we do!

We provide research and information literacy assistance, along with library instruction, to the SVSU and local community.

We can help you learn to navigate the world information especially through the library's online resources to efficiently and effectively find what you need for your classes and more. We can help you in variety of ways either at our research desk or via email, phone, chat, in CANVAS, or in online meetings. 

Research & Instruction Services along with directly helping our users also helps oversee library instruction, archival support, first-year experience library programming, assessment, collections, online course support and outreach.
