Your librarian will teach an information literacy session to your class.
If you are teaching the course online, your librarian will work with you to add an advanced research lesson to your course.
For seated sections of 3990 (not online sections):
For both online and seated sections, the learning objectives are the same.
By the end of the lesson, students will be able to:
Each section of 3990 will be matched with a librarian. You will hear from a librarian shortly before the start of your semester, and they'll help you schedule the session.
For seated sections you can bring your class to the library's L-100 computer lab, or your librarian can go to your classroom.
The librarian's lesson should occur after students have searched for scholarly sources on their topic.
If you've taught an LC or a 1299/199 course you know that the librarians typically work with the class when they are just beginning their research. But, the 3990 session is different. It should be later in the semester.
For seated (non-online) sections of 3990, students will come to the library session with one scholarly source that is appropriate for their topic, and that you have approved. (Students may have completed an annotated bibliography, for example, or submitted an assignment where they identify one scholarly source appropriate for their topic.)
