The Research & Instructional Design (R&ID) team provides research and educational technology assistance to faculty and students. We support both traditional and new models of student centered teaching, learning, and research in the liberal arts. Our team’s mission is to empower the Hamilton community to use information and technologies to engage in intellectual exploration, make informed decisions, and create and share knowledge.
The Research & Instructional Design team is available to provide specialized instruction on topics such as library research, poster design, digital media creation, survey tools, mapping tools, citation management, and more. Hamilton faculty are encouraged to bring their classes to Burke Library for instruction, or we can visit your classroom. Student groups are also welcome to submit requests. Contact Course Support or submit a request via our Library Instruction Request form .
