Assignments

Reference librarians can help you develop meaningful assignments that use information resources and minimize the chances of plagiarism and Google-like searching.  Here's a list of some possibilities, but we can help you with more.
Contact the reference librarian who is the liaison for your discipline.

Instruction

Reference Librarians can provide workshops for your classes in the library's electronic classroom where each student can work at his/her own computer.  These workshops can be about:
    Evaluating information resources
    Finding and evaluating Web sites
    Finding and using government information
    How to research a particular topic
    Using a specific database..... and more. 
Reference librarians will work with you to tailor it just for your class.  Contact the reference librarian who is the liaison for your discipline.

Web pages

Reference librarians can create Web pages which guide your students in doing research for a particular project.  Click here for some examples.  Contact the reference librarian who is the liaison for your discipline.
