Work with your librarian

Your librarian is happy to help incorporate information literacy skills and concepts into your class. If you have a research based assignment you may schedule a library instruction session to help your students get started with their research. Other ideas for incorporating information literacy into your class include:

  • Have your students compare and contrast three sources of information about the same topic. Have them look at a web site, a magazine and a scholarly journal article to help them discrimate the type of information that each provides.
  • Have your students "Google" the author of one of your Course Reserve readings to see what they can find out.
  • Have your students paraphrase their course reserve readings and watch for the temptation to simply copy'n'paste without thinking

When working with your librarian to develop a library session or research guide, take a look at the Information Literacy Standards for Anthropology & Sociology Students to get an idea of the range of topics that can be covered.
