Course-related research instruction is offered by librarians at the request of faculty members for courses at all levels. While the development of library skills is an integral part of the curriculum of the First Year Program, introducing students to research as well as to critical and evaluative skills and the continued development and honing of these skills is a four-year process. Course-related instruction is one way to accomplish this.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that links libraries together to create an Internet of their collections. By sharing the materials in their collections Interlibrary Loan allows library patrons to access materials beyond the scope of any one collection. By utilizing networked information technology, ILL has a global breadth. St. Lawrence University faculty, students, and staff are eligible to use Interlibrary Loan services. Residents of St. Lawrence County who have a valid St. Lawrence University Libraries borrower’s card may also use ILL.
