Services for Faculty

Faculty instructors: Are you interested in assigning your students a research topic related to undocumented immigrants? Librarians are available to help you craft your assignment in a way that's most sensitive to our undocumented student population and that's inline with the best library resources available from Skyline College.

Check out Designing Assignments for more information, or request a workshop taught by a librarian.
