Looking Ahead to Fall 2011

The end of the semester is finally here! I hope you all have a wonderful summer. While the last thing you want to think about is the Fall 2011 semester, I wanted to catch you before the semester ends.

If you are beginning to think about your classes for the fall...

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to support you and your students in your fall courses.
I can do one or more of the following:

  • Design a web-based research guide customized for your course
  • Meet with your students as a group during class time
  • Consult with you on a research assignment
  • Meet with students as a group (across Eng/FTS courses) outside of class, for workshops on using specific resources such as MLA Bibliography, Literature Resource Center, JSTOR, etc.
  • Meet with students individually for research assistance with a paper or project. Please encourage them to contact me directly.
  • Design a web-based research guide for your course, visit your class briefly to introduce myself, and meet with students individually as necessary.
I encourage you to include my name and contact information on your syllabi as the librarian for English and FTS, who looks forward to helping students with their research.

Summer Classes

If you are teaching a course this summer, I'm available to help you and your students. While you most likely don't want to give up a class period for instruction, please know that I can help in other ways:
  • design a web-based guide customized to your course and assignment/s
  • meet with students individually for research assistance

Congratulations Graduate Students!

Congratulations to all the graduate students who are graduating in May. It was a joy and pleasure to work with you. Best of luck on your future journeys!
