Research and Instructional Services department clearinghouse

Instruction Clearinghouse Initiative

For the most current information about efforts in the University Libraries to enhance teaching and learning in libraries please view our new Library Instruction Toolkit along with our Instruction Learning Community Blog.

These pages were created to support instructional efforts at Virginia Tech and contain a variety of tools and resources used by the faculty and staff of the University Libraries. First launched in 2001, this site reflects our continuing efforts to utilize assessment to enhance instruction. Follow the links to the left to learn more.  

While created for internal purposes, others are also welcome to utilize the materials found here. We ask that if you do so that you let us know and acknowledge our contribution to your efforts.  Questions and comments may be directed to Ed Lener.

Newman Library tour options

Self-guided audio tour

Our primary tour option for individuals is a self-guided, audio tour with a graded quiz that can be used to show attendance for classes that require participation or give extra credit. Locations and services are highlighted, and the tour takes about an hour. You can use your mobile device or check out an iPad from the Circulation Desk.
