Library Instruction Services

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, library and lab services have been modified. Learn about visits to our locations below. We also offer online library resources, including eBooks, eJournals, and streaming videos, and online chat assistance.

EBSCO databases and Discovery Search are currently experiencing intermittent technical issues.
Users needing to access online resources will need to go directly to non-EBSCO databases in the A-Z Databases list.

General notice goes here.

Library Instruction Services teach users a set of skills tailored to help meet their information needs, including search techniques, choosing appropriate resources, and using information effectively. Students who have access to library instruction services are better prepared for their coursework and assignments. The Library Instruction team partners with faculty to support the curriculum by providing fully customized lessons. If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Hollenbeck via email: ehollenb@southtexascollege.edu or phone: 956-872-1983.

Online presentations can be requested for students in any discipline, including Dual Credit students.

Presentation options can include:

  • focused lessons on a specific topic or resource,
  • in-depth training and strategies for students,
  • multiple sessions that scaffold through the semester,
  • a custom array of lesson topics designed to serve a wide variety of disciplines,
  • maximum flexibility to suit any curriculum, discipline, or learning environment.

Please request your library instruction session at least 3 days in advance.
