Custom Workshops for Faculty

A part of university education is teaching students the skills to navigate the vast information landscape.  Students are expected to develop literacy skills that not only help direct them in finding information but also understanding and applying the content to their own work.

Library workshops focus on developing the students’ understanding of the relationship between information sources and the quality of their own intellectual output.  HSS librarians offer hands-on, virtual and lecture style workshops designed to provide your students with the tools necessary to be successful researchers.

In collaboration with your Subject Librarian, a workshop can be tailored to address the specific requirements of your course assignments, in addition to building the critical literacy skills that will prepare them for future degree work

Librarians can create specialized guides that provide sources of information most relevant for your students course work.  The following are but a few examples of the guides developed by librarians for courses:

Librarians can offer lectures within your classroom that address information use and access.  They can also provide hands-on workshops where your students are given a chance to practice their skills in a lab under a librarian’s guidance.

For more information or to request a workshop for your course, contact your Subject Librarian.
