One of the great services library faculty provide for you is a visit to your class to talk to your students about research and information literacy concepts. We'll work with you to develop specific and meaningful instruction sessions, tailored to enhance your curriculum.
Complete the form below to request your session. Once submitted, we'll schedule your session and a librarian will contact you.
Ever wondered how to get a librarian to visit your online class? We have several options for you:
Contact Iris Carroll by email or call 575-6082 to get started.
.They are designed for groups of three or more people who are working on the same project (e.g.. a group presentation, a research paper, etc.) or hoping to work collaboratively to acquire a particular skill (e.g.. APA format, evaluating Web pages, etc).
If you see a group of your students who need the same sort of research help, send them our way. You can complete the form yourself or ask them to do it themselves.
If you have questions, please contact Kathleen Ennis at 209-575-6409 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you want to offer your students an extra-credit activity? Do you have a student who needs help with a specific information literacy skill? InfoLit Kits are what you need!
What are InfoLit Kits?
Infolit Kits are hands-on learning activities that each focus on a specific information literacy skill. Currently, we have two InfoLit Kits: Know Your Sources and Evaluating Sources that you can assign your students to complete giving them no credit, regular credit, or extra credit as you wish. You can have them complete one or both of the kits.
How does this work?
The kits are on Reserve at the East and West Campus L&LCs. We have 5 copies of each kit on East and 2 copies of each on West. The kits are designed for students to work on independently. They may be borrowed for 2 hours in-library use only, just like a regular reserve book.
You should instruct your students to go to the check-out desk and ask for either the Know Your Sources InfoLit Kit or the Evaluating Sources InfoLit Kit. Your students will receive the kit (a binder) and a 10-question assessment for them to complete once they’ve worked through the kit. Students then return the kit and the quiz to the check-out desk.
Assessment and Communication
A librarian grades the quiz and then contacts the student. If the student passes the assessment, he/she will receive an email from the librarian that includes a certificate to print or forward to the instructor to verify satisfactory completion of the work. If a student doesn't pass, the librarian sends an email inviting them to come in for a personal appointment in which the librarian will work with the student on the content and then re-assess. The librarian will then communicate the outcome with the student as before.
Would you like to introduce your class to the Library & Learning Center staff, building, and services? It's easy. Just call us to schedule your L & LC field trip. We'll walk you and your class through the building introducing them to our services and collections as we go.
We prefer to know about your visit at least several days ahead to make sure we have sufficient librarian coverage to accommodate your class. At the very least, we need to know no less than one hour in advance.
Schedule Your Field Trip:
Many of our students cannot afford their textbooks. The L & LC is happy to place a copy of your textbook on reserve for your students on either campus. However, we need you to provide us with a copy of your texts.
Please print, complete, and bring this form into the L & LC with a copy of your textbook:
