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: Students will have a choice from
five general topics, and they will need to select and narrow a topic, find an
article in a periodical and then summarize the article. The assignment is
attached; students need help determining what makes good source material, how
to access library info, how to narrow a topic and any other clues you can
give them. Their background is very diverse as far as their level of library
experience. After a guided/group part of the presentation, I'd like them to
have some time to explore their own topic for the assignment.
Upload class assignment and other relevant documents:

What are your learning outcomes for this session? All of the above! Also:
become familiar with library resources and how to access them; develop skills
needed to be in control of information rather than at its mercy
Other notes: Generally speaking, even though they may be computer literate,
ESOL students are often unaware of the tools and resources available to them
through the library that can improve the end product of academic writing for
them, as opposed to encountering information through Wikipedia or Google
accidents. Please encourage thinking rather than giving up and switching
topics ad nauseum.
