Beyond The Checklist Approach: A Librarian-Faculty Collaboration To Teach The Beam Method Of Source Evaluation, Jenny Mills, Rachael Flynn, Nicole Fox, Dana Shaw, Claire Wiley

Library Faculty Scholarship

Evaluating information is an essential skill, valued across disciplines. While librarians and instructors share the responsibility to teach this skill, they need a common framework in order to collaborate to design assignments that give students multiple opportunities to learn. Librarians and First Year Seminar faculty at Belmont University collaborated to design a unit of instruction on source evaluation using the BEAM method. BEAM requires students to apply a use-based approach to evaluation, to read and engage with sources more closely, and to think about how they might use a source for a specific purpose. Structured annotated bibliographies that included BEAM ...

Data analysis was carried out through the percentage of the number of students achieving test scores of more than or equal to 80 on a scale of 100. The results showed that 88% (28 ...

Weeding Into Outreach: A Case Study Using An Urban Community College’S Reserve Collection, Jeffrey Delgado Apr 2021

Weeding Into Outreach: A Case Study Using An Urban Community College’S Reserve Collection, Jeffrey Delgado

Urban Library Journal

Urban Community colleges face a unique constraint on students. The price of textbooks has skyrocketed in recent years, forcing our students to incorporate additional expenses in order to gain access to class material. College libraries play a crucial role in facilitating students with access to reserve collections, however, library policies do not always assist students in the most practical way. Using a reserve collection that was overloaded with copies and older editions of popular textbooks titles, this case study illustrates how weeding a reserve collection can facilitate an event where students can take copies of textbooks for themselves. Moreover, this ...

Escape The Show And Tell: Engaging Primary Source Literacy Through Immersive Game-Based Instruction, Autumn Johnson, Dawn Nikki Cannon-Rech Apr 2021

Escape The Show And Tell: Engaging Primary Source Literacy Through Immersive Game-Based Instruction, Autumn Johnson, Dawn Nikki Cannon-Rech

Library Faculty Publications

Instruction using Special Collections and archival resources tends to play a minor role in library instruction programs. Special Collections is more often employed in exhibitions or public forums for lectures, presentations, and academic discussions. Hands-on opportunities to teach with Special Collections, if available, are typically limited to oneshot lecture sessions with a handful of resources specific to a singular course subject or assignment topic. While these “Show and Tell” sessions can be a great way to expose undergraduate students to archival primary sources, they often are used exclusively in history or humanities courses. A more engaging, tactile approach is certainly ...

Faculty and Staff Publications By Year

Being an effective ally to marginalized communities is ongoing, difficult work that requires extraordinary commitment, changes in behavior, shifts in library priorities, constant learning, and resilience. Allyship means much more than taking the initial steps of gaining self-awareness and having the intent to speak up if one becomes witness to an act of bias or exclusion. A diverse group of panelists will offer their successful strategies for reducing the effects of bias and inequity that are deeply embedded in the structures of higher education, and by extension, libraries; and to help participants gain the courage necessary to follow good intention ...
