Sample Email for Contacting a Faculty Member
Dear Dr. Peterson,
I will be leading the library session for your Construction of French Humor class on Tuesday, March 20 from 4-5:30 in CAL 222.5. In order to make the session as useful as possible for your students, I plan to design it around the course topic, syllabus and assignments. It would be very helpful if you could let me know of any specific areas you would like covered. For example, would you like me to introduce your students to background information, databases of articles, the library catalog or Web searching? Would you like me to spend time talking about evaluating information? Please let me know if there are other topics I may not have mentioned.
Would you mind sending me a copy of the class syllabus and any assignments that your students are working on? How many students are in the class? Do you know if any of them have attended a library session before? Finally, do any of them have special needs, such as ADA compliant work stations?
If you have any questions, or would like to talk about any aspect of the class, please do not hesitate to call me (555-5555). I look forward to meeting you and your students.
