Instruction and Research Assistance
Consult with a Subject Librarian as you plan the assignment
Librarians will work with you to design an assignment that will achieve your course goals/objectives. Sending a copy of the assignment to your library faculty subject specialist will ensure that the library staff is ready to help your students. Always make sure the library has the needed information.
Teach research strategies
Include a list of steps involved in the research assigned. Invite your library faculty subject specialist to review strategies for the assignment with the class and discuss appropriate tools or types of materials.
Librarians can provide presentations and customized materials for your course and assignment, as well as general orientations for more inexperienced students.
