For classes that meet online and eventually in person, Caltech instructional librarians are available to provide in-class instruction that complements the class curriculum. Librarians trained in specific subject research or the use of individual resources can offer a guest lecture or hands-on workshop to students.

Librarians can also deliver customized presentations and stand-alone programs for students, faculty, and staff about:

  • research assistance (e.g., Zotero, copyright essentials, data management and visualization, thesis preparation, conducting ethical research, DocuServe)
  • library services (e.g., CaltechAUTHORS, 3D printing at the TechLab, the Library publishing program, CaltechDATA)
  • publishing concerns (e.g., authors’ rights, iThenticate, ORCiD, and open access)
  • topics specific to the needs of the Caltech community (e.g., crystallographic resources, life sciences research, the patent process)
