RD 90 - Messersmith *tb

Assignment description and sample topics: Every term I take my RD 90 Ss to
the library for a tour, and then they are oriented to the catalog and search
databases so that they can browse and select a book for their outside novel
reading projects. They need to leave with a general sense of the resources
available to them through the library, as well as a book either in hand or
requested from another campus. The books need to be at least 250 pages,
fiction, and meet some basic level/appropriateness requirements. I have a
recommended reading list compiled by librarians at MHCC, but it is only
partially useful. I'm working on updating the list; meanwhile, students
should be introduced to the suggested reading lists on the PCC library
