Library Liaisons to Your Discipline

Hostos librarians can help your students build their research skills in a number of ways:

  • Working with you to create in-class workshops tailored to your research assignment and learning goals;
  • Offering individual guidance to students about their research at the reference desk on the lower level of the library;
  • Collaborating with you to create course-specific research guides;
  • Embedding customized research support in Blackboard;
  • Working with you to hone research assignments aligned with the resources available to Hostos students;

And we are always open to speaking with you to discuss other possibilities for collaboration.
