Assignment description and sample topics:
This is an introduction to renewable energy class where the majority of the
grade is based on a research paper and presentation that the students will do
in groups. Groups will propose their own topic for the project (which I will
approve).

Sample topic: Micro hydro usage in developing countries, or a comparison of
different wind turbine technologies.

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)
- Differentiate between scholarly journals and magazines (15 minutes)
- Construct a query for journal, magazine, or newspaper articles and
evaluate best choices in the results list (25 minutes)
- Other (please explain below) (15 minutes)
Other notes: I've had prior classes in for this library instruction and found
it to be both highly valuable as well as entertaining! I especially liked the
instruction on how to use Google and other online resources (which gets me
more references than just Wikipedia... :))
