To schedule the two library sessions fill out the following U100 Library Instruction Request form. The earlier you fill out the request, the more likely it is you'll get your preferred dates. Length of visits: two full class sessions (75 minutes each), both in the library. Jamie will reconfirm instruction dates, location, and librarian teaching the sessions after you fill out the form. We recommend at least one week between library visits.
Remember: U100 is not a research course. The library sessions and the information competence project aim to provide a gentle introduction to research at the University level. Very few students will understand a traditional peer-reviewed article, and requiring them to use one may in fact be detrimental to their understanding of doing research and learning how to incorporate it into their own projects. For example, Time magazine can be a fine work to cite on a freshman annotated bibliography. The goal is to ensure that your students understand the articles they have chosen.
