Workshops Offered Fall 2013
The librarians will be offering three FYE Co-Curricular Event workshops this fall, each lasting 50 minutes. All workshops will be at 11am and will meet in hte Foley Classroom (206) on the second floor of the library. Dates for these workshops will be September 3, 5, 10, 17, 19, 2013 and additional workshops October 1, 3, 8, 17 and 22, 2013.
Using a Book: It may seem obvious, but we find that today's college students rarely think to look for the parts within a book that will help them use it more efficiently and strategically (e.g. table of contents, index, bibliography, date of publication, etc.). In this session we will talk about these different parts, different types of books and their ways of presenting information.
Interpreting an Assignment: We'll identify some of the common terms (literature review, primary source, etc.) used in assignment descriptions and the clues they provide in helping students understand what is expected.
Making the Most of the People Who Are Here to Help: This workshop will empower students to effectively utilize the help that library staff can offer. Students will leave with an understanding of how to prepare for a research consultation with a librarian.
Instructors and peer advisors are encouraged to attend.
