Speech! Page one of the assingment is attached.

First 15 minutes - Instructor
An hour (if possible) - Librarian (Topics & Research)
Time remaining: Students on computer

In the Fall, the librarians tried a new approach involving topic selection
with regard to interests and values. I think if the students were better
equipped with the library databases and basic research, it would have been
better. However, it didn't go over well with the students. They felt
somewhat confused and didn't think they got much actual research instruction.

The students are in need of basic library and research help. In a past term,
the librarians focused some time to topic selection with enclyopedias and
other books brought into the computer room and I seem to recall this was well

I am happy to collaborate with the librarians if it would help, however,
other than the different format last time, I have no complaints!

(I will copy this description in my other libray requests.)
