What can the ILC and your librarians do for you??? 

We Teach Research & Information Literacy Skills--

  • digital search strategies - including internet and subscription databases
  • searching for images (the copyright-friendly way!)
  • evaluating information sources (for accuracy, bias, relevance, timeliness, etc)
  • avoiding plagiarism
  • citing sources
  • creating bibliographies and annotated bibliographies
  • developing effective search terms
  • evaluating and revising searches (expanding or narrowing)
  • paraphrasing and note-taking
  • using NoodleTools, an electronic research platform, to conduct the entire process online! (making research easier for students and assessment easier for teachers)

We Support your Curriculum and Reading Needs--

  • collaborating with you to develop research assignments and inquiry-based learning projects
  • creating Assignment Pages with information resources for your class or assignment  (see an example here
  • providing instruction for using the library’s eBook, audiobook, and digital magazine collections (Overdrive, Flipster, MackinVia, and Follett apps)
  • recommending books, supplementary articles, and other resources useful to your curriculum
  • locating or recommending books and articles for your professional reading
  • giving Book Talks to classes, helping students find books or magazines
  • providing general reading advice
