Sims Memorial Library provides a multi-faceted library instruction program for Southeastern students, faculty and staff. The User Education Program is designed to help bridge the gap between Southeastern's classes and the library's information resources.

Facilitating learning for students, faculty and staff in using the "New Library" is our goal.


  • Course-Integrated Instruction
    Working in collaboration with professors and other classroom instructors, the Coordinator of User Education and other library faculty provide course-related library instruction on request. Topics of instruction vary widely, from instruction on how to use the databases available for a particular field, using Southeastern's online catalog, to using the Internet for research. This instruction can take place in one of our classrooms. For more details, call 549-2027 or fill out the online request for Library Instruction.

  • Library Assignment Consultations
    The Coordinator of User Education can help Southeastern faculty design assignments that offer Southeastern students a successful and challenging library experience. For ideas about the creation of effective library assignments for your students, faculty may wish to consult with the Coordinator of User Education.
