  12. Students learn and retain most when they have a need to know. Therefore, library insturction is the most effective if it is scheduled when students will need to use the library resources to work on a class assignment. Is your request directly related to a course assignment? (If "no," skip next question.)

  13. Please describe briefly the nature of the assignment requiring library use: (Any requirements regarding types or number of resources to be used or citation styles would be appreciated, as well as any topics we could use for sample searches. If you have the assignment in writing and it is too lenghty to reproduce here, please bring a copy by the library or attach it to an email.)

  14. Please state any additional preferences you have for the type of instructional session we plan? (i.e. What do you hope your students will learn from this session?) If your class does not have a library-related assignment, please indicate what you will be studying at the time of your library session. [ If you have several sections of the same class, note addtional dates and times requested here, along with class size.]
