This room is reserved primarily for library instruction. If you would like to collaborate with a librarian for an instruction session, please send your request and a librarian on your campus will contact you.
Please contact Debbi Lomax if you would like to reserve the library classroom for a different use which does not require a librarian. You may not reserve the room more than one week in advance unless it is for library instruction.

No If yes please specify: Assignment description and sample topics: I have two sections of RD 115 that 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 project due Week 9.
