Customized Research Instruction

Customized Research Instruction

Overwhelmed and anxious are common student reactions when using an academic library, especially for the first time. As a result, many students often fall back on using Google and Wikipedia and bypass the more sophisticated research tools and the research librarians who are trained to help them. Google and Wikipedia are helpful in their own way, but the library has scholarly resources and staff with expertise that far surpass what Google can do. A librarian can introduce your students to what the library has to offer during a short 20-minute presentation or a full class period. Librarians can create class guides customized for a particular research assignment.We also welcome students to set up an appointment with a librarian for one-on-one help.
