Learning & Information Literacy Librarian
Fall 2020 Update
Librarians are available to provide virtual information literacy instruction during the Fall 2020 semester. Options include:
- A librarian can meet with your class synchronously via software such as Zoom, Collaborate, or Teams.
- A librarian can create a video presentation or course research guide to share with your asynchronous class.
- Contact us to discuss how we can help you meet your students’ information literacy learning needs remotely.
Library instruction sessions are tailored to your assignment. Topics may include finding and evaluating sources, developing research strategies, using databases, and formatting citations.
- Contact Grace Kaletski-Maisel to schedule instruction classes; please schedule at least one week in advance.
- Information Literacy Instruction is intended for courses with an assignment that incorporates an information literacy or research component or courses with a relevant learning outcome (FSEM, JSEM, writing-enhanced, senior capstone).
- Visit the Information Literacy Instruction guide for more information on this service.
- The Archives offers instruction sessions on primary sources as well as archival theory and practice. Contact Kelly Larson for more information.
If you don’t have time to include a full library instruction session, consider these alternatives:
- Request a brief librarian visit to your class for an informal, 10 to 15 minute introduction to library services.
- Request a Course Guide highlighting pertinent information resources and search strategies in support of your research assignment.
- Add a link to a relevant Research Guide to your Blackboard course or syllabus. Our Research Guides provide discipline-specific insight into our collections and guidelines on using databases and other resources.
- Recommend our Research Services to your students. Librarians are available to meet with students one-on-one. For immediate help, call or text 386-747-9028, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the library. Or make a Research Consultation appointment.
