Your students will:
We provide instruction on the skills and resources students need to find quality sources in today's information-rich world. The length and content of instructional sessions is tailored to your needs; topics include physical library resources and services, online search techniques (keywords, boolean terms, truncation, phrasing, subject terms), finding sources, resources for citing sources, how to determine if a source is trustworthy, and more. Instruction may consist of presentation, group discussion, team teaching, and/or practice exercises, and takes place in the Paul W. Ogle Library. To schedule our support of your course objectives please fill out a request form.
If your course includes labs where students research topics or cite sources during class time, librarians are available to provide point-of-need assistance. To schedule a librarian, please fill out a request form.
The library has developed a series of help guides for research-related topics such as EBSCOhost, citing sources, and evaluating websites. Librarians provide relevant handouts during instruction sessions, but students and faculty are welcome to access them online in the Help section of the Library website.
Librarians can create online guides to useful resources on the topics your students are researching. Librarians have already created LibGuides for various courses and subjects. To request a LibGuide, contact a librarian (see right).
Ivy Learn Modules
You can import Library modules (Earth Science - Sellersburg: Videos ) into Ivy Learn to provide students with easy-to-access contact information, quicklinks, help guides, etc. For more information, please contact a librarian.
Librarians work with faculty to provide additional support to classes that require intensive subject-specific research.
