Check out the Library's new guide to Library Resources For Remote Delivery
...and much, much more.
The Library's Doing Research: A Student's Guide to Finding and Using the Best Sources has four modules:
Every module should take approximately 20 minutes to complete and consists of written text, video, interactive H5P activities and a short quiz (linked through your course Moodle site) that will be graded.
These modules roughly follow the research process, so you can assign one or more of them to your students depending on the class/assignment requirements at any particular point in the course. We have instructions for embedding the modules, or component parts, into Moodle.
Tutorial usage note: the red tool bar at the bottom of each page has forward and back arrows; jump to any section using the Contents menu in the top left.
Still can't find the resource you need to teach your students research skills for a particular assignment? Contact the Liaison Librarian for your discipline. If we don't already have an online instructional component to suit your needs, your liaison librarian may be able to create a quick demonstration screencast, or build a course page for your class to meet your specific needs for desired information literacy learning outcomes.
The Library's Open PUblishing Suite of services can help you:
Through the AskAway chat service, librarians answered 60% more questions this past March & April compared to last year during the same time.
In this new reality of remote instruction delivery, your students still need access to research and citation style help.
Many students prefer chatting with a librarian, as they can access help at point-of-need: during their researching or while writing/citing assignments online.
If your students need research or citation help, you can refer them to the Library's Ask Us page (where they can choose to chat, email or text us).
