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: 10-15 minutes to introduce "research log" assignment. Assignment description and sample topics: Students will be researching/writing about same topic/theme for entire term (self-chosen). They will write three different types of arguments in respect to their topic. Their first assignment, which will coincide with the library lesson, will ask students to write an evaluative argument. Essentially, they will need to judge the quality of a specific aspect of their topic. Before the library lesson, students will need to submit a "Term Topic Proposal" and begin drafting (without sources). I will send sample topics once I receive the proposals.
