Use these forms to request a library orientation or specialized instruction session with librarians at one of your college library or electronic resource center sites.


Ensure that your students make the best of library and other learning resources by spending a class period with one of the librarians at your campus.

HCC librarians can show your students how to locate the resources they need for their assignments, evaluate the information they find, correctly cite the information they use, and even plan their projects.

If you would like your orientation to include a brief assessment quiz or survey the results can be provided to you.

To schedule an orientation via email or phone, contact a librarian at your campus from the list to the left. You may use these detailed forms to send your requests.

  • Please schedule 2 weeks in advance when possible.
  • Please allow 2 business days to receive a personal confirmation from the librarian or from another available library faculty member.
  • We request that you attend library orientation with your students.
