Research Strategy Sessions for Your Classes: Going Beyond Google

Course instructors, are you satisfied with the quality of the sources your students use for term papers and other research assignments? Tired of seeing references to Wikipedia?

Falvey librarians can show your students how to access and navigate the authoritative, information-rich resources available through the library website. Full text-journal articles, national and international newspapers (current and historical), statistical reports, handbooks and raw data sets: all these resources are literally at students’ fingertips. Unfortunately, many of our computer-savvy students, unaware that the library homepage is their gateway to these high quality sources, never find these valuable tools.

vu-student-research1Reveal a whole new universe beyond Wikipedia by scheduling a library instruction session for your students with a subject specialist librarian. If you do not know the name of your liaison librarian, check the list of librarian liaison teams, or contact Barbara Quintiliano, instructional design librarian. Sessions can be scheduled during a regular class period or at another convenient time.

You and your students are welcome to come to the Griffin Room on the first floor of the library for hands-on instruction, or librarians can do a demo in your classroom. Librarians are also available to prepare online course and topic guides as well as handouts to assist your students.

Give your students the edge they need. Contact your liaison librarian today!
