We’Ve Got You Covered! Using An Umbrella Approach For Research And Beam To Build Student Research Papers: How Library Instruction And English Composition Classes Lay The Foundation For Information Literacy And Research Skills, Samantha Mcneilly, Amy Locklear

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

The Library and English instructors have typically utilized traditional ‘one-shot’ sessions to introduce students in Composition classes to the library databases and other resources available to them. Typically, there is little discussion as to how to formulate research strategies other than using keywords and Boolean operators in the search boxes of the various databases.

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Advertising and promoting key services and resources is crucial to the mission of any academic library. But successfully engaging with the student body of any large university is a challenging and problematic task. What does an academic librarian do? What does an academic library have to offer its students? Do undergraduates (or even graduate students) really know what libraries and librarians have to offer? Librarians at The University of Alabama and The University of North Carolina-Greensboro have attempted to bridge this gap by moving out of the physical confines of the library in order to engage with students on familiar ...
