for individual help...

A research consultation is a meeting between you and a librarian who will help you think about your topic and find articles, books, and other useful material for research. This meeting is especially helpful if you're working in a new subject area or if you are writing a thesis or other capstone document.

Dear Faculty,

Do your students rely on Google for their research assignments? Do they copy and paste from webpages without citing their sources? Do you spend time one-on-one, teaching students how to do information research, how to think critically about information sources, and how to use information effectively and ethically? Librarians can help!

--Link library services to your Moodle shell to help with the research and bibliography issues.

--We already offer individual research consultations with your students (and with you, if you're stuck on a project). Look on the "Research Appointments" box below.

--Instruction connected with specific courses or assignments seems to be more effective in teaching students to use the library. Use the Instruction Request form above to specify what you want your students to learn.
