It’s that time of the year again: The fall semester is right around the corner and everybody is scrambling to finish his or her syllabus. Please contact me as early as possible if you plan to bring your class to the Library for a research workshop, even if it will be much later in the semester. The Library’s classroom tends to get booked quickly. I find that research workshops are most beneficial when they are scheduled after students have picked their paper topics.
There may be no room in your syllabus for a library workshop, but you feel that your students could definitely use some extra help. A research course guide is a practical alternative. Please take a look at some of the online course guides from previous semesters: art history, criminal justice, history, and sociology. In the past I have often done both, research workshops and online course guides in lieu of handouts.
Last but not least, remember to order books and videos early, so that they will be available in the Library when you or your students need them.
