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.
Do you need time to discuss non-library matters with your class on the day of library instruction? No If yes please specify: Assignment description and sample topics: Once I have a librarian assigned, and I've had more time working with students to form their research questions -- something on "nature deficit disorder" (The Nature Principle, by Richard Louv) and/or environmental sustainability, I'll send a list of topics to the librarian. 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 notes: If possible, I'd prefer each of the above to be abbreviated; I'd like to keep the instruction to 30-45 minutes, as a review, and center the instruction on creative key word searches, then have the students work in the library on their projects with guidance for individuals from the librarian (and myself).
Will there be 28 available computers or will some students need to bring their laptops?
