The College's Libraries strive to collaborate with faculty of every discipline to teach students research, information, and digital literacy skills. Librarians work closely with the faculty member to develop a special lecture that focuses on the type of research and content specific to each course. Librarians can also create web based library research guides and help instruct students in other tools (iMovie/Moviemaker, Wordpress/Blogger, Google Apps, Prezi, etc.) that specifically incorporate library resources related to your course. By having a librarian deliver a special lecture for your curriculum, the librarian can assist you by helping your students:
Many faculty members report receiving better research papers from their students following library instruction sessions.
Librarians can assist with avoiding plagiarism, topic selection, search techniques for finding books and articles, and critical evaluation of sources. Embedding a librarian in your OAKS course allows an instructor to add a librarian to assist their students with research.
You may embed a librarian in your course in one of two roles. Both roles allow the librarian to participate in the discussion board and to appear on the classlist for easy email access.The librarian cannot see any student work or the course grade book.
Librarian role - Allows students to email their librarian from the classlist. Librarian can create customized widgets for library research guides.
Content Assistant role – In addition to the above, librarian can add content beyond widgets such as links to tutorials and articles.
If a librarian has not been assigned to your class, please use this form to request a librarian to assist in the research aspect(s) of your OAKS course. Once a librarian has been assigned, please follow the steps below to add the librarian to your course.
