Research Skills + Strategies

Teach your students how to do research at WCADF using the catalog, databases and print resources. We explain how to evaluate information critically, especially when it comes to the web. This class will be tailored to your course or assignment so your students get the most relevant information. Takes place in your classroom or a lab reserved by the librarian.  Allow one hour of class time.



    Not to be confused with the TV game show, this is a fun interactive session in which students decide, after being presented with background information, whether examples of artisitic approprition such as Shepard Fairey's use of an AP photo of Obama are fair or not. Students learn about plagiarism, copyright, fair use, and the difference between ethical and legal issues.  JeopARTy is held in your classroom or other room reserved by Library staff. Approximately one hour.
