Course-specific handouts

Wondering where you put that handout the librarian gave you at the Library instruction? Here are some of them.

These handouts were created by Butte College librarians with a focus on a specific course or assignment in a class.

Course resources include:

  • Library Instruction handouts (prepared by the librarians who teach the sessions)
  • Resources provided by instructors

Class resources are usually available after the Library Instruction session.

Instructors who would like to request a Library Instruction for their classes can fill out the Library Instruction Request Form online or call the Reference Desk at 879-4024.
