No time for a Library class?
Research Guides (LibGuides):
Link to a specific research guide in your Moodle class. Contact Angela Davis (x7366) or Catherine Tingelstad (x7362) to discuss having a LibGuide created specifically for your class.
Self-Guided Library Assignments:
Have a librarian create an assignment that students complete on their own. The assignment will incorporate the library resources and skills students need to find information related to class assignments.
A librarian will be very happy to visit your class for a quick introduction or a full instructional session.
Benefits of Instruction
A library instruction session that takes place just after the research assignment has been given will help...
- students find and use quality resources.
- reduce student frustration.
- students successfully complete research assignments.
- students gain information literacy skills.
- save the INSTRUCTOR'S time! Questions about library resources can be addressed as a group as opposed to dealing with many individual questions throughout the semester.
