National Library Week – Tip of the Day

What leads to overall student success? The incorporation of information literacy skills across curricula. Brown Library wants to partner with faculty and staff to promote information literacy. Here’s one of the ways we can work together.

Tip #2: Request a library presentation to complement an assignment.

A library staff member can support a class assignment by providing a related library presentation or by providing guided research sessions. Just determine when the library instruction will be most meaningful to your students, and then fill out our online form to request instruction. Thank you for attending the library session with your students so that you can provide direction and encourage student participation.

Library Contest!

Students, faculty, and staff --- Enter the library’s “How Many Books?” contest. Guess how many books in print are in the Circulating collection on the top floor of the Brown Library Building. The student and the faculty/staff member who makes the closest guess (without going over the actual number of books) will win a prize! Go to the top floor of the library and look at the Circulating collection; then submit a contest entry form at either the Reference Desk or Circulation Desk. The contest runs April 15 through April 19, 4:00pm. Winners will be notified on Monday, April 21.

Happy National Library Week!
