Assignment description and sample topics: Students have been asked to write
an cultural/community analysis essay that utilizes outside resources,
interviews, field work. I would like the librarian to focus on ways to search
for potentially productive articles that focus on local communities, current
events within those communities, current issues, etc. The students are still
gathering possible topic ideas, so the session could be exploratory. I have
worked with Pam Kessinger multiple times with this exact project.
Students will be able to (check all that apply):
- Develop a search strategy based on their research topics (15 minutes)
- Perform an efficient search of the library catalog for books and other
materials (15 minutes)
