“Reserves” are materials set aside by your teachers for the entire class. These items are available for check out at the Circulation Desk during normal working hours.
RACERtrac provides three (3) ways to access your instructor's reserve material: by instructor's name, department, and course number. After locating the appropriate materials visit the Circulation Desk to check out the material.
Material includes books, audio and video cassette tapes, DVDs, compact discs, CD-ROMs, and photocopies of periodical articles or chapters of books. All items on reserve are kept at the Circulation Desk in Waterfield Library and may circulate for limited loan periods during normal working hours.
The classroom contains approximately 21 laptop computers, 21 chair-desk modules, an instructor workstation with a dual monitor computer, and projection for presentations. Single chairs are available to provide some additional seating. Please DO NOT REMOVE LAPTOPS FROM THE BACK OF THE STORAGE CABINET.
Missing Laptops must be replaced. You or your group are responsible for this cost, if it is determined that equipment went missing during your use of the room.
Instruction in the use of library materials and information literacy is within the core mission of the University Libraries. The Research & Instruction Librarians hope to make the incorporation of instruction in these areas seamless into your course plans.
Consider consulting your subject librarian for the following:
1. Development of assignments that will require use of library resources
2. Development of assignments with the purpose of exposing students to different types of information resources that may be available on a given topic.
Consider including an instruction session from a subject librarian within your course on the following topics:
POGUE LIBRARY SESSIONS
LIBRARIANS ON CANVAS
Contact your Subject Librarian directly for ideas on how to incorporate a librarian’s virtual presence throughout the research process.
Keeping up with changes in information retrieval can be daunting, even in your own discipline. Contact your Subject Librarian directly for personal help with library resources in your area, or for faculty group sessions in your department.
REQUEST A SESSION
All sessions need to be scheduled at least two business days in advance. No sessions will be scheduled with less than a two-day notice.
Instructors must be present during requested sessions. We cannot conduct your course in your absence.
EVALUATE A SESSION
Librarians will provide instructors with an evaluation form at the session time. If you prefer, an online evaluation form may be used.
