Library Learning & Teaching

Do you want your students to learn to use specific research indexes and scholarly resources? Do you want your students to use academic research tools in your subject area rather than rely exclusively on unvetted web resources and Wikipedia? Do you need to incorporate research skills into your student learning goals for your classes? Do you need help making course materials available online to your students without infringing copyright? Talk with your subject librarian today!

Let us help you teach your students research & information literacy concepts and skills! You can arrange for your subject librarian to visit your class to teach information literacy topics (such as getting started with research; evaluation of sources; distinguishing between popular & scholarly materials; evaluating websites; understanding plagiarism, correct paraphrasing, and ethical use of information), and to teach the ins and outs of specific indexes & authoritative finding tools relevant to your class assignments and subject area. Contact your librarian to get started!
