The library supports students learning in a variety of ways. The following examples illustrate the range of support that librarians are providing for courses and assignments. Consult with an instruction librarian to discuss the best approach, and any other ideas you have for your course.
|Example: Librarians met with lab sections of CHEM 204, Organic Chemistry. Professor Don Jameson and the librarians created a research exercise designed to help students write a lab report in the style of a scientific paper. Students were introduced to the scope and structure of scientific information, as well as to a specific research tool in chemistry: SciFinder Scholar.|
|Example: A librarian developed a web-based guide for students working on Honors English research.|
|Example: Reference & Instruction librarians have served as guest discussants, engaging students in conversations on such topics as copyright law, scholarly communication, the PATRIOT Act, and reliability of information. This provided students with an opportunity to explore complex issues related to information.|
|Example: Librarians met individually with students in Professor Bill Bowman's HIST 418. Librarians helped students identify and utilize primary and secondary sources for their research on Nazism and life inside the Third Reich.|
|Example: A librarian worked with Professor Monica Ogra to modify assignments in GS 440, the Globalization Studies Capstone. The new assignments are designed to offer students repeated opportunities to practice and refine critical information literacy skills.|
