The University Libraries is pleased to offer students the opportunity to learn more about detailed research methods connected with their English 1201 or English 1202 coursework via our in-person and virtual workshop sessions. Our first session is scheduled for Wednesday, September 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This link will take you to the registration site for this upcoming in-person meeting = https://shu.libcal.com/event/11108289
These specialized workshops are designed so students can meet with librarians if the instructor opts for the modules. We want students to know that even if they do instruction virtually, that there are librarians to help them during their time here on campus!
As to the value of these sessions, Maria Barca, Faculty Librarian and Coordinator for Instruction notes: “Students have really great resources on campus if they need help with their course work, from the Academic Resource Center to the Writing Center. We want to make sure students also know that they can sit down with a librarian and receive help with an assignment, especially if they need to do research through the Libraries’, find and assess sources, or use a citation style they may be unfamiliar with. Attending one of our workshops is a great way to get the one-on-one help they may need.”
Attendance is not required but highly encouraged so the librarians know how many students they should expect for each workshop. This will also impact on the number of librarians that will be present and we can devote full one-on-one attention to answering questions and supporting research needs.
