WR 121 - Hart ?rr

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
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?

Thank you.
