The Alice Statler Library is committed to student success!
The library provides several different types of information competency-building training sessions tailored to the Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management Program.
- LIBRARY ORIENTATION AND DISCOVERY ASSIGNMENT
Targeting first-semester students, this orientation familiarizes students with the resources and services available at the library. The librarian walks students through the library to show them the physical layout. Students are informed about library policies and are shown the resources available through the library's website. The librarian conducts basic searches in the library catalog and in the periodical databases. After the orientation, students receive a short discovery assignment. This assignment reinforces the material covered in the oreintation by allowing students to find resources on their own.
- INSTRUCTIONAL SESSION TAILORED TO SPECIFIC CLASS NEEDS
The librarian can tailor workshops to specific assignments or course objectives. These workshops are intended to support assignments that require library or Web research. Sessions include introductions to electronic resources, search techniques, information evaluation, and documenting sources.
- ONE-ON-ONE INSTRUCTION
Because the Statler library primarily serves a small segment of the campus community, the librarian has the time to work one-on-one with students. Students can make appointments with the librarian ahead of time. Instructors can suggest students take advantage of this service.
