We can help your students learn to:

  • think about the kinds of information and resources they need to find
  • analyze how the literature in your discipline is organized
  • develop bibliographies for their research assignments
  • retrieve materials efficiently, so that their energy can be focused on understanding the material, rather than on finding it
  • search effectively on the Internet
  • filter and evaluate the material they’ve retrieved

To support student research in your courses, we can:

  • offer an in-class session on searching.
  • develop a research guide tailored to your course (generally also included in a class session).
  • meet with your students, one-on-one, to guide their research efforts.
  • if your course has an Blackboard site, provide an assigned librarian to whom you can provide a link.

To request an library instruction session, you may submit the library instruction request form (below), or call:

  • Jody Caldwell, X3481 (CLA, Caspersen School)
  • Jesse Mann , X3472 (Theological School, Graduate Division of Religion)
  • Your favorite librarian (see our Staff page)
