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.
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.
