In fall of 2003, the library began a systematic approach to teaching information literacy and library skills in order to teach all students the basics of how to conduct academic research. While the goal is to embed most essential research instruction within two required English classes and one required discipline-specific class, there may surely be classes that will benefit from additional instruction or consultation.
CCL librarians are available to lead research workshops/instruction sessions for your students in the library LINC Center or in your classroom. You may want us to focus on discipline specific search strategies, locating specific types of materials (book reviews, older articles on microfilm) or you may feel that your students need a refresher course on the basics of keyword vs. subject heading searching or how to choose appropriate databases to search.
Librarians at CCL are available as consultants when planning research assignments. Familiar with the range of sources we have access to in print and electronically, librarians can help structure a research project to ensure students will be able successfully locate needed materials at CCL. If consulted far enough in advance (months), we may also be able to add items to our collection to support a research assignment.
Please email or call Susan McClintock at 760-8382 for more information about scheduling a consultation.
The library sends material to a commercial binder and would be happy to include any personal items that you would like to bind in those shipments. We have had various faculty members bind their completed dissertations, class texts and personal bibles. In general they find our binding costs inexpensive in comparison to local, commerical options. For manuscript specifications and cost click here to see the slide show. The library's items are submitted in mid-May. Personal items included with the May order will be less expensive.
