Creating Effective Library Assignments

hesburgh_markCreating Effective Library Assignments – Notre Dame

This site outlines excellent guidelines for creating effective library assignments, including pitfalls to avoid and common misconceptions about the students using university libraries.

Their guiding principles include:

  • have a clear purpose
  • relate to course objectives
  • make students aware of the variety of resources available
  • teach students to evaluate the quality of their sources
  • teach students to conduct ethical scholarship

This site would be helpful for librarians who need to communicate with professors who are designing these lessons.  It also is a good example of how collaboration between librarians and professors needs to be reinforced with criteria for performing good searches and ethical scholarship.
