Student research projects? Your Subject Librarian can help!

Subject Librarians can assist you in developing your students' information literacy skills to help them more effectively find, evaluate, and use scholarly and non-scholarly resources to research a topic. After discussing your course/assignment objectives, you and your Subject Librarian can determine which combination of the following instruction modes will best achieve your goals:

In-Class Sessions Research Guides Research Consultations

Your Subject Librarian can tailor in-class instruction sessions to your specific research assignment, typically accompanied by an online research guide and/or print handout.

To enable active learning, library instruction sessions can be scheduled in a library classroom equipped with computers or in our Special Collections & Archives for primary source work. Or your Subject Librarian can come to your classroom – whatever works best for you and your students. 

Your Subject Librarian can create assignment-specific or general research guides for your course, which you can embed directly into the iCollege course management system for ease of access. Students can schedule face-to-face consultations or correspond via email, phone, or real-time virtually (Skype, WebEx, etc.) with the Subject Librarian to address their specific research needs.
