All Day

SAC day - classes cancelled until 4 p.m.

Posted by: Library Web Event


5:15 p.m. - 6:40 p.m.

WR 121 Wahl-Stephens *km

(60 minutes of instruction requested)
They will have read essays about mental and physical illness. I will ask them to list topics they would hypothetically research and will send that to you prior to the library session. I am guessing these would include alternative medicine, major mental illnesses, etc. Some students may choose to begin research on another essay, so again, I will ask them to list for me their topics and send those to you.

I require three articles from our databases, and use of the MLA for in text citations and Works Cited, which we will have gone over prior to your session.

What are your learning outcomes for this session? That students are more
aware of our databases and feel somewhat comfortable about exploring them for their research. That students understand terms like Peer Reviewed, printing a PDF. That they understand how to e-mail a document to themselves from the databases, how to plug in the MLA information...basic research skills.

12 p.m. - 12:45 p.m.

HST 105 Gray *rr

I uploaded the syllabus from last year - the assignments will be the same. We need intro to JSTOR for Scholarly Article Response Paper (p. 4) and for book review (p. 5). In the past, Jane Rognlie brought in a number of books from the booklist on line (see subject guide for course) for students to look at and also some videos/movies. Showing resources on how to make a proper bibliographic statement from JSTOR and for books is also helpful.
Upload class assignment and other relevant documents:
What are your learning outcomes for this session?
Find appropriate article for scholarly article review.
Familiarize students with appropriate library resources at PCC, including subject guide for India.
Choose an appropriate book for book review.

1 p.m. - 2:50 p.m.

WR 121 Huminski *bk

Assignment description and sample topics: Students will research a case study based on a reading they choose from our course text. I will send the assignment details to the librarian when we get closer to the date.

What are your learning outcomes for this session?
*Construct a query for journal, magazine, or newspaper articles and evaluate
best choices in the results list
*Use Google critically and understand its strengths and limitations
Other notes: If possible, I'd like to give the students an hour to do their own research after the librarian's instruction (the class time is 2 hours -- I'm hoping for one hour instruction, and one hour individual research).
