Instruction Librarians

Brianna Buljung

I’m Brianna Buljung, the Library’s Teaching and Learning Librarian and instruction coordinator.

Our team works with faculty to incorporate information literacy and research skills into the curriculum to help Mines students effectively research and evaluate information.

We design sessions, activities, research guides and Canvas content based on your goals and learning objectives for the course.

I’m always happy to discuss our program and the ways we can work with your course, program or research group!  You can also reach out to one of our instruction librarians below directly.
