How Can We Help You?
The Read Library strives to help all members of the HRS community. To meet that end, faculty collaboration and support are two of our foremost interests.
What can we do for you?
- Class visits for research instruction
- Assisting with project and assignment design to ensure that information literacy needs are being met
- Help with personal and student research
- Work together to build the library collection
- Help you find the best resources for readers
The librarians can come to your class to give students an overview of research skills. This can be a broad overview or it can be tailored to a specific course or assignment. These sessions can be as brief as 15 minutes, or can include actual research time in the library and last for an entire class session. Or come visit us in the library. A week’s notice is appreciated.
Not sure if your students are information literate? Have the librarian look at an existing assignment to see if information literacy standards are being met. The librarian can also work with you to develop a project that fully integrates information literacy with course expectations while ensuring students’ research skills are being developed and intensified.
While you are the subject expert, the librarian is eager to help you save time and energy by assisting you in finding resources to supplement readers. Ask how the library can keep your materials on the cutting edge.
