Below is a form to request library orientations for your classes. We use your specific assignment when presenting the recommended databases and/or library catalog. During the CoronaVirus we will still work with you to at minimum provide a Library Resarch Guide or other visual material. We still ask for a request for AT LEASTA A WEEK IN ADVANCE.
Your students will be shown:
In order to give librarians enough time to prepare we request that you schedule a library orientation as early as possible in the semester, but at least one week in advance.
The library is a "place" where some students can be overwhelmed and timid. We are hoping that by us working together we can help reduce these barriers.
Remember, the librarians are on your team. Our goal is student success. Please let us know if we can assist in creating your research assignments. This will allow the librarians to suggest new acquisitions that will supplement your topics. This will ease the frusration by librarians and especially your students when assisting them with their research as we will have the required resources to provide them. This in turn will give your students a better chance of writing a high quality research paper.
If you plan to give an unusual type of an assignment, please keep the librarians in the loop so we can be better prepared when your students approach us for help.
