Librarians at Honolulu Community College provide reference and research assistance. In addition to their professionalism and knowledge, they help students and faculty explore and understand the library’s collections and services in person, over the phone, and by email.
In addition to answering individual research questions, librarians provide tours, visit classes, lead workshops, and sponsor presentations throughout the year.
The library's instructional program plays a vital role in the campus' information literacy outcomes. Teaching librarians work closely with faculty to combine research instruction with course specific assignments. Each instruction session is customized to a specific class, so even if students have received instruction in another course, there are many benefits to reinforcing key research concepts again. Assessment tools, such as in-class exercises, group work, and questionnaires, are integrated into library instruction. Librarians also create and maintain a useful collection of print and online research guides that support its teaching.
