IS 001: Research Across the Disciplines

Research Across the Disciplines, IS-001, is a two unit credit course taught by the Instructional Services Librarian every fall term.

IS 001 Research Across the Disciplines (2) Encourages students to embrace research methodology as a fundamental way in which we can study and interact with the world around us. Explores how humanists, social scientists, and natural scientists approach these issues through close examination of phenomena, texts, and other artifacts. Invites students to critically examine their assumptions about research and prepares them to participate in scholarly discourse. Increases students' confidence to locate, evaluate and incorporate sources into their academic work.

Please contact Savannah Kelly (skelly@westmont.edu) for further information about this course.

 

Librarian + Faculty Collaborations

Librarian + Faculty Collaborations

 

Levels of collaboration between instruction librarians and teaching faculty vary by degree. Please read the following descriptions (Fully Embedded Librarian, Multiple Points of Collaboration, & Single Collaboration) to select the appropriate level for your class.

Please submit your requests through Library Instruction Request Form, which is available HERE on the library's website.

I. Fully Embedded Librarian:

Embedded librarianship is the highest level of collaboration between an instruction librarian and a teaching faculty member. This is a semester-long partnership with your library liaison.

Embedded librarianship takes many forms, and it is up to the librarian and faculty member to determine the best course of action throughout the semester. Examples might include: collaborative assignment design or rubric creation; librarian available during several classes or labs to work with students; providing feedback on students’ annotated bibliographies or other assignments; librarian leading a reading group, etc. Ultimately, embedded librarianship is a sustained collaboration throughout the semester.

Liaisons are willing and able to accommodate two embedded collaborations per semester. If you are interested in this opportunity, please submit the request form, or talk with your liaison early in the semester.

II. Multiple Points of Collaboration:


A second alternative for teaching faculty is scheduling multiple structured activities with your liaison. Librarians can be involved with Eureka, create a LibGuide for your class, teach a traditional library instruction session, or provide feedback on source-based assignments and/or student work. Faculty can request that students schedule research consultations with the librarian, or faculty can request special library instruction sessions on particular topics of interest, e.g. Zotero.

Please select at least two of the following.

I would like a librarian to:

  •        Be involved with my Eureka class guide
  •        Create a LibGuide for my class
  •        Teach traditional library instruction session(s)
  •        Collaborate on assignment design (scaffolding research papers, problem-based learning)
  •        Provide feedback on students’ source-based assignments
  •        Meet with my students, either individually or in small groups
  •        Create an instruction session on a special topic

III. Single Collaboration:


The final choice is to schedule a single collaboration with a librarian

Please select only one of the following.

I would like a librarian to:

  •        Be involved with my Eureka class guide
  •        Create a LibGuide for my class
  •        Teach a traditional library instruction session
  •        Collaborate on assignment design (scaffolding research papers, problem-based learning)
  •        Provide feedback on students’ source-based assignments
  •        Meet with my students, either individually or in small groups
  •        Create an instruction session on a special topic

Please submit your requests through Library Instruction Request Form, which is available HERE on the library's website.
