St. John's University New York Campuses Closed

Out of concern for the safety of our students, faculty, and administration and in consideration of the widespread regional snow removal efforts which are expected, all St. John's University's New York campuses will be closed Monday, January 26, and Tuesday, January 27, 2015, and all classes will be canceled.

This closing applies to St. John's Queens, Staten Island, Manhattan, and Oakdale campuses.

Research Instruction

In support of the University Libraries' mission, Instructional Services addresses the needs of our diverse academic community by teaching research skills that support students' and faculty members' ability to pursue free, self-directed inquiry and lifelong learning.

Librarians provide research instruction through a variety of means, such as the Research Survival Guideinstructional tutorials, workshops for students and faculty, and class visits, through which librarians provide guidance for students in completing research assignments.

Librarians also work directly with faculty members and provide guidelines for designing effective research assignments. To schedule a class visit, or for feedback on your research assignment, please contact us.
