Classroom Workshops

Research librarians customize research workshops for courses ranging from First-Year seminars to Graduate Thesis independent studies. Faculty are encouraged to collaborate with librarians on developing learning goals for specific courses or assignments. We hold our workshops in the Phelan Library Learning Center, a classroom that supports hands-on work with students. Alternatively, librarians can make presentations in classrooms equipped with a computer and a projector. As a component of the workshops, librarians publish Course-Specific Research Guides. The online guides extend the reach of the classroom, because librarians can embed steps in the research process within them, guiding students with textual notations and aligning the design of the guide with the design of particular assignments.
