Instruction & Research Services

Library Research for Latin American & Caribbean Studies

LACiC provides library instruction sessions when requested by class instructors for any credit-bearing course.  The LACiC Librarian can also provide a library instruction session or workshop geared towards assisting a special project within your unit or addressing the need of a particular group of students.  Most library instruction sessions take place in the Green Library teaching classrooms (and can also take place at Hubert Library with advance notice).  The LACiC Librarian can also provide an instruction session in your classroom if it has a computer, projector, and Internet access. 

These workshops and classes can help you and/or your class to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate and effectively use the information.  The main objectives can be customized to include several or all of the following:

  • become familiar with traditional resources
  • develop and refine search strategies
  • learn how to navigate in an electronic research environment
  • identify resources not owned at FIU and the most appropriate way to get them
  • identify and evaluate Internet resources
