Information Literacy Seminar

Do your students struggle with research papers? Can they locate research materials on given assignments? Do they know what to do once they have found the information?

Librarians and faculty working collaboratively can make a tremendous difference in student learning. Facilitating our interterm workshop on Thursday December 1 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM in Library room 124 will be faculty members and librarians from Oberlin College and Miami University of Ohio. They will share how collaboration on information literacy improves student research skills. Bring an assignment that you would like to adapt to a more collaborative model. Lunch will be provided. And while you’re there, stick around for a training seminar in RefWorks, a web based biographical manager from 1 PM to 3 PM in Library room 201. Let us help you help your students!

Please contact Doris Ebbert, x1314; DEbbert@otterbein.edu by November 29, 2005 to register.
