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: Animal Nutrition: A minimum 5 page (not including title page and bibliography) paper is due late in the term on either a specific nutrient and its importance in the diets of exotic animals, or a nutritional disorder and its relevance to exotic animals. At least 5 peer-reviewed research articles relevant to the topic must be discussed. Examples: Iron Taurine Vitamin C Hemochromatosis Metabolic Bone Disease Upload class assignment and other relevant documents: What are your learning outcomes for this session? Access library catalog and article databases Develop a search strategy based on their research topic Differentiate between scholarly journals and magazines Access full text of articles when available and properly utilize inter-library loan when necessary Identify appropriate information for bibliography Other notes: Students will be using the library for similar projects in most courses throughout the 2 year program so this introduction is more to have them understand the use of the databases and ILL to retrieve peer-reviewed articles than to complete one specific assignment.
