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 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 answers their students' needs.
Easy to share: The guides can be embedded into Canvas or shared via hyperlink.
Course Reserves is a library service that allows instructors to make course materials available to students in the library and/or online.
Please note that due to COVID-19, we will prioritize electronic items rather than physical reserves to limit handling of physical materials.
All electronic materials uploaded to Ares, the online reserves management system, are automatically accessible through Canvas. Items must have complete citation information and comply with U.S. copyright law and Emory's copyright policies. Find out more about course reserves and copyright.
