US 1100 Tours & Tutorials

There are many ways that Alkek Library can help your students students achieve their goals.  

Our hope is to familiarize new users with the library’s resources, services and spaces and to ease any library anxiety or intimidation.  

To do this, we offer various options to University Seminar Instructors.  

Online Tutorials in your Canvas Course 
Add a “Library Guide” tab directly to the left-hand navigation in your US1100 Canvas Course. This will give your students access to tutorials covering the basics of how to use the library without ever having to leave Canvas.  

To enable this feature, take the following steps: 

  1. Open the course.  
  2. Click “Settings”  
  3. Select the “Navigation” Tab 
  4. Locate “Library Guide” and drag and drop to the top list/things included in course navigation. You can also click the three dots and then select “+Enable.” 

In-Person Library Tours 
Bringing your University Seminar class provides an opportunity for active learning. Tours will spend around 15 minutes in The Wittliff Collections, 15 minutes on floors 2-4, and 15 minutes in Alkek One. Tours are conducted by energetic and knowledgeable library staff.
