UNB Libraries is dedicated to developing critical information and digital literacy skills within our undergraduate and graduate students. This summer, librarians have been working on developing a wide range of digital materials to support faculty and instructors for the 2020/2021 academic year, whether your instruction will be provided in-person, or remotely via Alternative Delivery Methods (ADM).
If Faculty or Instructors would like to incorporate either synchronous, or asynchronous library instruction into your course for fall term, please reach out to the Liaison Librarian in your discipline to discuss content and selected delivery platform, if other than D2L. Librarians are also available for consultation regarding instructional design for class assignments, or activities that incorporate library research skills or resources.
Also, consider including a relevant Library Help Video or Research Guide in your D2L course shell, along with Liaison Librarian contact information. The inclusion of this information will help familiarize students with the people available to help them, and introduce key resources and tips tailored to your discipline or course.
Other options include:
- Library instruction on a wide range of cross-disciplinary topics such as systematic reviews, government statistics/data, GIS/maps, entrepreneurship, Research Data Management (RDM), citation management software, Open Access (OA) and copyright.
- One-on-one or small group consultations for students in your class
- Research Toolkit: either utilize selected library basics modules, or assign the entire Toolkit for credit
- Ask Us: promote to students as the place to turn to ask research questions from anywhere in the world!
