Many faculty, across the disciplines, help students learn library research skills and practice them. Faculty librarians at Hostos support this effort in a number of ways:
And we are always open to speaking with you to discuss other possibilities for collaboration.
If you would like an in-class research workshop, your department's liaison librarian and/or the library's teaching coordinator, Prof. Haruko Yamauchi, would be happy to speak with you about tailoring the workshop to support your research assignment and learning goals for your students.
We request at least two weeks' notice before the date when you would like the workshop.
(1) Student learning goals
Please describe your research assignment, including major deadlines (or just attach your syllabus, if it describes the assignment).
By the end of the semester, what do you expect students to know and be able to do regarding research?
(2) Logistical information
Please note that for classes over 25, we may need to make reservations for smartrooms, computer labs, COWS, and/or projectors, which are all subject to availability – advance notice helps our chances.
We look forward to collaborating with you!
Work with us to customize the "Library Research Help" guide in your Blackboard course!
To provide students with 24/7 support online, all student instances of Blackboard now include a "Library Research Help" link in their menu.
When an individual professor has worked with a librarian to create an assignment-specific guide, that guide will appear when students in that class click the research help link. If there is no assignment-specific guide for that class, a discipline-specific research help guide may appear. Finally, if there is no assignment- or discipline-specific guide, the default our Research 101 guide will appear.
If you are interested in a customized approach, please contact your liaison librarian.
