Information for Course Instructors

Students are more computer literate than ever. But just because they know how to use a computer to search the Internet doesn’t mean they’re equipped with all the skills they need to be competent researchers. If you expect your students to write a research paper you will save them needless frustration by inviting a librarian to lead a workshop or deliver a guest lecture in your course.
