Home > Get Help > Tutorials > Webinars


A webinar (short for Web-based seminar) is a online presentation or meeting accessed by computer. Webinars provide an excellent opportunity for distance students and faculty to receive instructional services from Twin Cities librarians.

Requesting Instruction via Webinar

Instructors who are interested in scheduling a library instruction session via webinar should request library instruction at least two weeks before the requested class time. Please specify on the instruction request form that you would prefer the session to be conducted via webinar. The librarian will work with IT, site coordinators, and you to ensure the technology is in place to conduct the webinar.

For more information, contact your librarian.

Required Technology

Saint Mary's University uses the webinar software Zoom. Librarians will work with instructors to set up audio options.

Before beginning a webinar, the instructor should make sure the audio and visual technology is working. To access the webinar the instructor just needs to select the webinar link provided in an email from the librarian.
