Research Across the Disciplines

Research Across the Disciplines, IS-001, is a two unit credit course taught by the Instructional Services Librarian. It will be offered next in Spring 2015.

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 Molly Riley (mriley@westmont.edu) for further information about this course.

 

Librarian + Faculty Collaborations

Librarian + Faculty Collaborations

Types of collaboration between instruction librarians and teaching faculty can vary. We are always open to discussing ways we can creatively and effectively support the research and information literacy needs of your students. The following types of collaborations are just some of the ways we can work with you and your students. Contact your library liaison to discuss how you'd like to collaborate this semester and/or to arrange a library instruction session.

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. If you are interested in this opportunity, please talk with your liaison early in the semester.

Multiple Points of Collaboration:

Another way teaching faculty and librarians can work together is to schedule multiple descrete and/or structured activities during the semester with your liaison.

Examples might include:

  • 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 students, either individually or in small groups
  • Create an instruction session on a special topic

Single Collaboration:

You may also choose to schedule a single collaboration with a librarian. 

Examples might include:

  • 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 students, either individually or in small groups
  • Create an instruction session on a special topic
