Library Instruction Builds Better Research Papers

Library orientations are in full swing!  Join your colleagues and schedule one for your class:  

Two types of orientations help your students do effective research:

1.   Customized 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 the Internet.

2.   Drop-in 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:

Drop-in choices include:
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.

There are just 30 Drop-in Workshops this semester, so encourage your students to plan ahead.
