Best Practices For Research Assignments: Working with the Library

Why Collaborate?

We believe that information skills are important and should last throughout a learner's lifetime. Fostering information skills (finding, evaluating, using information) is key to all students and we're here to help you explore new and exciting ways to do this!  Some of the ways we can collaborate with you include:

  • Exploring new pedagogies and teaching strategies with you
  • Developing instructional materials that you can incorporate into your class
  • Consulting with you on research assignments
  • Scheduling library instruction classes in the library and in your classroom
  • Building LibGuides (like this one!) to support your students' assignments
  • Working with students on a one-on-one basis to build research skills
