Over 3,000 students attended the Libraries’ instructional sessions for freshman students enrolled in English 101 classes over the past several weeks. In total, 160 sessions were held and students were taught fundamental research skills and to effectively use library resources to locate scholarly information.
The sessions provided a brief introduction to the characteristics of databases and database search techniques. This was followed by students working independently to conduct research for their projects as library instructors offered individual guidance.
