Tips for planning a research assignment

  1. Design "applied" assignments.
  2. Students will find the library assignments more meaningful if they use the retrieved information for a task related to topics covered in the course.
  3. Teach research strategies where appropriate.
  4. Students often do not have the research skills that experienced researchers have.
  5. Provide students with resource lists.
  6. List specific information sources or types of sources for a particular assignment so that students have a starting point. Remember that many of our scholarly articles are accessible through the Internet, but that they are not necessarily Internet resources.
