The Research Practices Instruction Program at Oxford College Library orients students not only to the use of library resources but also to the nature and processes of research and critical inquiry. We work with faculty members from all departments across campus to design a library instruction session that is unique to that class and based on instructor-selected student learning outcomes. The sessions are focused and tailored to student needs in a given class.
Students can schedule one-on-one research help with a librarian. Things we can help them with include, but are not limited to:
Research Guides/Canvas Modules help students negotiate the research process by presenting them with a curated selection of resources that can be subject or course-specific.
Tailored: Instructors can select resources they would like to see emphasized, or provide feedback to ensure a given guide/module answers their students' needs.
Course Reserves is a library service that allows instructors to make course materials available to students in the library and/or online. View the Course Reserves LibGuide for more information.
To request that items be placed on reserve for your course, send an email to the Oxford Course reserves team at (OXRESERVES@LISTSERV.CC.EMORY.EDU) with your course name, number and a list of items you would like on reserve.
Here are some links to online resources that Emory has available to assist you:
E-Book guide: This is an Emory Libraries guide that explains further about the e-books available at Emory and how to use them in your courses. This is a great guide to share with your students.
Finding Open Educational Resources for Your Class: The resources here will assist you in finding the right open educational resources (OERS) for your class. These are free to use.
