Schedule Library Instruction

Instructional Services Librarians are eager to assist faculty by teaching them or their students how to best use Library facilities and materials. Please use this form to request a Library instruction class. If your browser does not support forms, you may print this form and send it to our Head of Reference and Instructional Services Librarian, Stefanie Lapka, at If you have any questions email or call (956) 665-3331.

Instruction classrooms are located on the South side of the 1st floor of the West Wing of the Library. Classroom #1 (1.122) has 48 computer workstations; Classroom #2 (1.123) has 40 workstations. Both classrooms have a whiteboard, projector and screen, and multi-purpose instructor's workstation. Please request your class at least one week in advance. The deadline for requests is noon Thursday of the week before class. We will make every effort to schedule valid class requests, but sometimes there are scheduling conflicts. You will be contacted to reschedule if necessary. If you submit this form, leave us a voice mail, or email us, and do not hear from one of us within a couple of days, please try to contact us again.

List the preferred day(s) and time for instruction. For general orientation classes we recommend a full week in the fall or spring, an entire class period during the evening, and two consecutive days for summer sessions.
