meet on Thursday and Friday--one section at 8-9:50 and another from 11-12:50.
I would like to assign a simple research project where students become an
"expert" about a particular question they have. I would like an
introduction to library resources, some feedback about how to phrase a
question for research, and I would really like some formal instruction around
smarter ways to use the web. I realize this is short notice, but the need
is greater than I anticipated. Any Tuesday or Thursday in Weeks 5 or 6 that
could accommodate both sections will work for me.
Upload class assignment and other relevant documents:
What are your learning outcomes for this session? Smarter, better web
searches. An introduction to finding materials relevant to a broad research
question both online and in the library itself.
Other notes: The morning class has 20-25 students in attendance each day, and
the 11 o'clock class has around 25. They will be conducting research for a

Help with the location assignment term research paper for my 115 courses.
I've changed it a little this term so that there's a first and final draft.

students struggled with finding references outside of the usual touristy
ones, so they seem to need to learn to make connections while the search the
databases for articles.
Thanks as always!
Upload class assignment and other relevant documents:
What are your learning outcomes for this session? Leave with working
knowledge of library databases, to search for references on themed
assignment. The assignment, attached, is half about travel and half about a
hobby, so references should deal with both aspects to create a full paper.

Hi Debbi,
I'm trying to establish a year long training schedule for Accessibility Trainings that I can hand out at In-service. Is there any chance I could reserve RC Lib 213 on:

Tuesday, November 20 from 9:30 to noon
Wednesday, Feb 13th from 1 to 3:30pm
Tuesday, May 21 from 9:30 to noon

I am trying to do these trainings at each campus once per term.
Thanks! If you can let me know today, that would be awesome, so I can get this schedule printed up.
Best,
