Sonic Fugitivities: The Soundscapes of African-American Literaure

Professor Jarvis C. McInnis, Ph.D., from the English & Africana Studies department met with me to discuss how we can get his students connected to information resources that demonstrated mastery of literary works, primary and secondary resources , critical works, and multi-media resources in order to formulate an annotated bibliography.  The following Library Research Guide was used in a library instruction session that focused on developing Boolean searching in order to find resources to create an annotated bibliography.

Online Interactive Information Literacy Modules

Covering necessary information literacy topics in a traditional "one shot" session can be difficult. To address this challenge, a suite of interactive online modules were developed to provide active learning lessons on various information literacy topics. The modules can be used in fully online, flipped or face-to-face courses and can be integrated into a learning management system (LMS) so student knowledge and progress can be tracked and assessed. Developed using Articulate Storyline, the sources files are available as open source downloads under a GNU General Public License (GPLv3) from the Marquette University Libraries GitHub site. Please feel free to download and continue to enhance and improve these modules.

Customizable ACRL Framework Posters

Research Services librarians at Bucknell University collaborated on a project to make the research concepts the Framework represents more accessible to students.  This is an open educational resource in the form of digital and physical customizable posters.The research guide includes a repository for capturing ideas and suggestions for reusing, remixing, and re-conceptualizing the posters. This project opens pathways for librarians, instructional technologists, and faculty to communicate and collaborate on student-centered information literacy instruction.

Information has Value and Why This Matters

Designed for an upper-division petroleum engineering seminar, this lesson attempts to use the frame "Information has value" to illuminate the process of discovering and retrieving scholarly information.  The lesson was more successful when delivered to early-stage graduate students in the petroleum engineering department.

Collegiate Research: More than Google

Drawing on the frames "Scholarship as conversation" and "Information creation as a process," this lesson was created for students in a university-wide freshman success seminar.  An instruction librarian and writing faculty collaborated to create the lesson under the auspices of the university's Center for Academic Services and Advising, which coordinates the seminar.
