A Three-part Introduction to College-Level Research
For an explanation of the Beyond Google Program and its learning objectives, see the Beyond Google guide.
Part 1 – Before the Library Workshop: Developing a Research Question
For Faculty TO DO Before the Workshop
The Library Assignment asks students to complete three tasks –
- Share their Research Question
- Find a Source
- Learn about Lateral Reading (evaluation strategy)
Part 2 – Library Workshop with a Librarian
For Faculty TO DO During the Workshop
During the Library Workshop, students will work with librarians to:
- Explore library tools to make research more effective
- Find a resource and evaluate its quality
- Learn how to get help from librarians
Part 3 – After the Library Workshop: Putting New Skills into Practice
For Faculty TO DO After the Workshop
We’ve created a companion Research Toolkit for students to reinforce and expand on these research concepts.
Librarians can share information and respond to questions from students in Teams if you add a librarian to your class.
For more faculty support, including sample assignments, please see this Beyond Google guide.
