New! Library Research Modules for your I Course
Help the students in your Contemporary Issues (I) course with Drake Library's new online research modules.
The Information Literacy Team of librarians want to help your students navigate to better resources without getting overwhelmed.
Our new online modules can help! Consider assigning your students one or both of these modules, which include videos, interactive tutorials, and quizzes. Modules specifically recommended for your I course:
Searching for Information—helps students develop a search strategy for a complex topic. Brainstorming keywords out of a research question, choosing a database, and refining database search results are all included.
Presenting Research and Data—helps students build connections between what they already know in order to synthesize new information. Includes Anatomy of a Research Paper, Annotated Bibliography, and Writing Help.
How to assign a module:
1. Visit and review the modules.
2. Choose one or both whole modules to assign. Or, select a few key videos, tutorials, or quizzes that you think are the most relevant.
3. Copy and share the links with your students.
Remember: Students should never struggle for more than 10 minutes with their research. Please encourage your students to use our Ask a Librarian services.
Thank you for helping the library pilot our new information literacy tutorials.
