Library Guide for EN 102 Instructors: Start Here

Information about planning library instruction for your class

Welcome to the course guide for EN 102 Instructors!

This guide is full of resources and information to help you integrate library resources and information literacy into your EN102 class. Have ideas how to make it better or questions that aren't addressed here? Just let me know!

Information in this guide is relevant to EN 103 and 104 classes as well; we offer the same standardized options for all three courses. Please email Sara Whitver (smwhitver@ua.edu) if you have something else in mind that is tailored more specifically to 103 or 104, and we'll work together to meet the needs of your students!

If you are teaching EN 101 and have something library related in mind, you are welcome to email me as well, and we will work together to provide your students with a learning experience that meets the needs of your course.

 

EN102 Guides for Students

Research Help for Your Students

Research Consultations

During the semester, there is always a librarian at Gorgas who is on call for student research help between the hours of 8 and 6:30 Monday-Friday. Sometimes, students have trouble finding sources. Sometimes they don’t where to start looking! Please encourage your students to come to the information desk on the first floor of Gorgas for help if they need it, to click on the Ask A Librarian tab on our website, or to send us a text message. Students are also welcome to make a consultation appointment with me, or any of the other librarians! We are here to help them figure things out.


Research Rescue

Between weeks 8 and 16 of each semester, we offer our drop-in service, Research Rescue. Students are encouraged to come to the Information Desk between 4-6 PM Monday-Thursday, where a librarian will help them locate and evaluate sources for their papers.
