·         Making ebooks discoverable – What are the steps involved after an ebook is selected in Gobi?  How do ebooks become discoverable in Endeca/Summon, and what can we as selectors do to ensure single titles and ebook collections are accessible to users?  What is the current approach to testing and quality assurance?

Introduction to Critical Library Pedagogy (ACRL webinar & discussion)

Tue, 2015-11-10 19:00
Tue, Nov 10, 2015: 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Rubenstein 249 (Carpenter Conference Room)

What is critical pedagogy and why might we want to incorporate it within library instruction? This ACRL webcast will investigate critical pedagogical approaches for library instruction with the greater goal of improving our teaching, how students feel about using the library (affect), and the image of the librarian. As we strive to make our teaching, our libraries, and our campuses as inclusive as we can, there is still a lot of work to be done. Critical library instruction, situated within critical pedagogy, examines power and privilege in the classroom and beyond. Through this webcast, participants will begin to situate this praxis for their own roles as librarian educators.

Following the webcast, Hannah Rozear and Kelly Wooten will lead a discussion around their experiences incorporating critical pedagogy in Writing 101.

Save research and writing time by learning EndNote, a powerful citation management tool. In this class, you will learn how to automatically enter citations from databases into EndNote and then use EndNote to easily format your citations into bibliographies. Class time will also be spent on how to and when to cite and on ways to avoid plagiarism.
