Library Instruction

Counseling students come to Lakeland with varied backgrounds.  Some are familiar with relevant library resources.  Others are not. Some have APA citing experience; others so not. Librarians can help your students develop the research skills they need to be successful through our:

  • in class instruction 
  • online instruction
  • customized training videos 

All instruction sessions will be designed to prepare students for the assignments required in your course. To learn more about instruction options, call Jamie Kellner at 920.565.1038, ext. 2419 or email him

Add a librarian to your Discussion Board

Faculty can request that a research librarian participate in the class discussion group.  As part of a discussion group, a librarian can offer research advice to students, answer questions or pose questions to get students thinking about effective researcc techniques. Email Jamie Kellner for details. 

Research Guides

​Research guides (a.k.a. LibGuides) are a great way to consolidate a variety of resources for one course into one, easy to use research tool. For example, if a weekly class assignment requires locating a peer-reviewed article, writing a summary of the article and providing a correct APA citation for the article, a research guide can be created that includes:

  • a short video defining a scholarly journal,
  • links to databases with peer-reviewed counseling articles
  • directions for navigating these databases,
  • introduction to reliable websites explaining APA formatting, 
  • information on requesting a writing tutor.  

Here are a few of the counseling guides available:

If you would like a guide created for your class, email Jamie Kellner. Include a copy of your course syllabus. . 

This video explains how to add a research guide to your course content. 

Reading Lists

Do you have a list of articles you that would like to recommend to your students?

Librarians are happy to check for online availability and provide links to the articles for easy access by your students. 

What if the library doesn't have what I need?

Library doesn't have what you need? Try our interlibrary loan services. We will work to obtain the materials from another library. Most articles come within a couple days; books can take several weeks if we are mailing them to your home. Sissertations, theses and commercially available psychological assessments are rarely available for loan. To initiate an interlibrary loan request:

  • Use the Request this option available in several library databases, or
  • Complete this form

If you would like to make a recommendation for purchase, please email the library director, Ann Penke.
