|Library Instruction Builds Better Research Papers|
Library orientations are in full swing! Join your
colleagues and schedule one for your class: http://wserver.scc.losrios.edu/~library/forms/CIRequest.htm
Two types of orientations help your students do effective
orientations tailored to your
assignment or course objective: You choose the topic and the date of the
orientation. Instructors bring their classes to these
hands-on sessions during class time. Orientations cover either
searching for books, journal and magazine articles, or searching
workshops offered throughout the
semester, including evenings and Saturdays: Students sign up in advance to
attend a 50-minute session on their own time. They receive a
"Proof of Attendance" slip after successfully completing a worksheet
that reinforces the lesson. Find out more: http://scc.losrios.edu/~library/DropInSchedule/dropinschedule.htm
A: LOIS: get a brief tour; locate library books using the computer; Inter-Library Loan.
B: Online Databases: locate magazine, journal, and newspaper articles on the computer
ESL Sections A & B: recommended for ESL students, but anyone may attend.
