End the Fall Semester Strong by Getting Ready for Spring

End the Fall semester on the right foot by being prepared and organized for your Spring semester classes. If you’re assigning your students a research project however big or small, we offer research support with just the right fit.  E-mail ( me with your research assignment and time line and I’ll be happy to make a class visit, create an online research guide or schedule a help session.  Don’t forget to arrange online course reserves too!

Online Research Guides

These are perfect for limited, well-defined research projects and for classrooms that can’t accommodate direct research instruction.  In them I list the most valuable information sources your students will need, offer tips or videos on how to best use unusual databases, and advice on how to tackle the research problem.

Class Visit

Class presentations can be as long or as short as you wish.  I make every effort to accommodate classes offered anytime or any where.  They are most efficacious when the students know they have a research project on the immediate horizon.  Topics range from literature reviews  to identifying data sources and secondary market research.

Help Sessions

Help sessions scheduled outside of normal class hours or during class work days are a nice way to reinforce on a one to one basis what was covered in a class visit or communicated in a online research guide.  They are best scheduled at an optimum point of need, typically one week before a due date when students urgently need help.  Past topics have included source evaluation, creating citations and finding missing data.
