Stress Management

Use this tool to understand how the research skills contained in the course outcomes, or other indicators, align with developmental stages of information literacy and critical thinking. See how PCC Librarians can help support the integration of research concepts and skills at levels appropriate to the course outcomes. This guide was prepared by the PCC librarians for Stress Management (CG 145)

Research support framework

The following shows where Stress Management fits into the Research Support Framework developed by PCC Librarians.

Information literacy developmental stage: 
Perceptual Shift / Skills Instruction
  • I know what the library is, and where it is
  • I feel like the library is a welcoming place
  • I know who the librarians are
Cognitive domains and information literacy outcomes: 
Connecting to college
  • Time management
  • Note Taking
  • Building on incremental successes

Library support of CCOGs

These are the course outcomes and other indicators which require library support.

Intended course outcomes related to information literacy: 

Define the physiological/psychological effects of stress

Course content relating to information literacy: 

Documentation and reflection on observations

Course integrated research support

These are the ways that the librarians can support information literacy achievement for the students in this course.

Corresponding information literacy outcomes: 
  1. Understand that the library is a place to connect to the college
  2. Improve studentship, using listening and task focus to learn fundamental searching skills
  3. Explore stress management information available through the library
Information literacy instructional objectives: 
  1. Recognize the librarians, and the services and study areas available in the library
  2. Identify library tools and opportunities for locating information through the library website
  3. Use the library catalog to identify useful classifications to explore in the stacks
Bridging competencies: 
  • Connect records in library catalog to items on shelf
  • Skim result lists to locate relevant sources, when search terms are not in the titles or abstracts
  • Use self reflection to improve search strategy
