Here are guides we have created specifically to assist you and your students.

Library Services

Instruction Sessions

You can request an instruction session by:

  • Coming into the library and filling out a form
  • Filling out/ submitting the form.
  • Emailing Sarah, and she will send you the form

We can tailor sessions to your needs. We design sessions that meet students where they are in the research process. Tell us how much time you have allotted for the presentation, what you’d like covered, and we’ll create a presentation that fits! Instruction sessions utilize iPads and a combination of active learning activities, lecture, and discussion for a hands-on experience.

Sarah Hood is the lead Librarian for instruction sessions. Contact her at or (505) 428-1830.


Placing Items on Reserve

Reserve items can be a desk copy of the textbook (provided by instructor) or supplemental readings/ videos you want your students to have access to. Reserve items do not leave the library and may only be checked out for 2 hours.

To place an item on reserve by:

  • Bringing the completed form and the reserve item(s) to the library
  • Bringing your reserve item(s) to the library and fill out a form in-person
