We are here to help you teach! Request assistance in designing and testing library assignments, using library resources in the classroom, and creating class-related bibliographies. You can schedule instructional sessions that are designed specifically for your class, covering areas such as library research strategies, critical thinking skills, and information literacy. Contact your departmental library for details on what instructional services they provide or contact Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe, Coordinator for Information Literacy Services and Instruction.
Library instruction is provided for first-year students in Composition I classes through the Instruction Department of the Undergraduate Library. With the ever-changing faces of information access and retrieval the development of research skills continues to become more and more important. Competent research skills allow students to become independent critical thinkers and more successful in their academic pursuits. Schedule a session!
The library offers drop-in workshops on various topics, including basic library research skills, using RefWorks (a citation management tool), and finding grants to fund your research. Check out the workshop schedule and send your students, or register yourself!
Departmental libraries create library guides that provide instructional resources for students and instructors including research guides, subject guides, database guides, and class guides.
