We offer a variety of resources to support your classroom instruction. You can incorporate several options on your own or work with your librarian to customize resources and instruction for your specific course.
We specialize in teaching students basic through advanced research skills including how to evaluate information. We can also provide instruction for topics like systematic reviews, research using primary resources and evidence-based research.
What we offer
The New Literacies Alliance project offers online tutorials to teach students important information literacy skills. K-State instructors can easily add the tutorials to their Canvas course to track completion.
Librarians can provide instruction for both in person or online learning environments. Sessions can focus on introductory research skills, advanced, subject-specific research strategies or instruction related to a class assignment. Librarians are also happy to help develop assignments.
Our research guides provide tailored help to students by subject or course. Many students may not be aware of these helpful guides. We recommend instructors add at least one research guide in their Canvas course and point it out to students. Librarians can also create new guides to meet your specific course needs.
There are several ways to incorporate the Libraries in your Canvas course.
The possibilities for collaboration with our librarians are endless. Librarians have worked with instructors to apply for grants, scaffold research instruction with an entire program, co-teach classes and create classroom assignments that incorporate research skills.
