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: Demonstrating/having class set up a Google doc Assignment description and sample topics: My usual range of World Religions assignments: easiest way to view them is to add assigned instructor to class. Sample topics would be: Judaism and its concepts of helping others in relation to service-learning;a formal paper on Ashin Wirathu, fundamentalist Buddhist leader in Burma/Myanmar;background on Jean Kwok, author of Girl in Translation; finding information on Chinese New Year for a creative presentation; doing background research to compare to a video on Scientology, as well as finding such a video; locating the On Being presentation on Sitting Bull/Tatanka Iyotake and then finding other information about him; finding a mosque to visit in the area and doing background research on it; doing research in preparation to interview a Hindu leader. Upload class assignment and other relevant documents: What are your learning outcomes for this session? At the end of the session, students will understand that each assignment involves some form of research, will know what kind of research to do for a given option, and will know which library, and other, resources are appropriate for that option, and where to begin to find those resources. They will have located and used the Religion research guide. They will also know the ways to contact librarians for help, and when to do so. I appreciate the sessions where the students are given one of the above options and begin to locate sources for that option, which they then share with the rest of the class. This actively involves all of the students, and lets them begin to explore the resources, particularly from the religion research guide. Other notes:
