Required Pre-Workshop Homework: Library Research 101 Tutorial & Notebook

You can view the Research Workshop presentation slides. As a part of our flipped classroom model, we kindly ask that students complete the Library Research 101 Tutorial & Notebook homework before attending their workshop. Learn about the tutorial here.

We (Librarians and LibRAT Peer Instructors) can engage and connect with students in your course via the Canvas Librarian role. In previous courses, we've provided Q&A opportunities via discussion boards, but we're open to trying new ways to support students as they work on their research! This embedded partnership also allows the librarian to gather student feedback from the Research Notebook activity (e.g., research skills that may need more support). If you'd like to embed your librarian, Mercedes Rutherford-Patten, into your Canvas course, follow these directions.
