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.

Yes If yes please specify: Quick address, either before or after depending on time. 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... :))
