LBCC Librarians provide workshops teaching Information Literacy concepts to your students, including how to do library research, how to use periodical databases, finding and evaluating information from the Internet, and how to avoid plagiarism. We work with teaching faculty to tailor sessions to course learning outcomes, addressing those concepts and skills necessary for students to do college level research. In addition, the library also provides the following instructional services:
Class Assignment Web Pages
The library will create web pages specifically for course assignments, which include recommended research tools, ideas for working through the research process, and other suggestions to help students be successful with the assignment.
Help with Assignment Design
For instructors looking to improve existing assignments or wanting to create a new one, librarians can help design effective research assignments.
Tip Sheets or Tutorials for Research Tools
Librarians will create video mini-tutorials or web page tip sheets on particular research tools by request.
Individual Help for Students
Students can make appointments with a librarian for individual help with their research projects. Librarians are also available for drop-in help at the Reference Desk.
