As you prepare for the start of a new academic year, don’t forget to schedule a library session for your courses. Most students begin their research using Google, and while that works sometimes, they often cannot connect or locate the full-text of their results or even make appropriate resource choices. Library instruction sessions utilize best practices in effective and engaged teaching, and relate content directly to student learning outcomes and assignments in order to strengthen students’ information literacy skills. Librarians can also be an invaluable resource as you prepare course assignments! We can also create web-based guides, Libguides, for specific courses or assignments. Librarians can come into your classroom or we can tailor research sessions around your assignment and course goals and host these in one of our two computer classrooms in the Library.
Please let us know how we can help you help our students be more successful.
