Just like you, we want your students to be the best that they can be! Scheduling an Information Literacy session for your class can make the difference between a lackluster paper/project and one that is A+ quality!
How could a library Information Literacy session benefit my students? Is it worth giving up an entire class period?
Absolutely! All too often we assume that any student who enters college must be technology-savvy and can therefore handle herself in the college's library. But oftentimes, that is simply not the case. Many students are indeed 'gadget-savvy,' but this does not necessarily mean they are 'information savvy'; they may be able to acquire a great deal of information, but can often make poor choices in the quality of information they gather. That is where we, the library staff, come in! One 50-minute Information Literacy session at the library can reap enormous short-and long-term benefits for your students.
How do I schedule an Information Literacy session?
Contact Kala Dunn (3338) or stop by the Edens 214A.
If you've never scheduled a session before, here are just a few things to keep in mind:

I have an article in mind that I'd like to make accessible in my course shell for my students to read. How can I do that?
It's entirely possible Edens Library might have full-text access to the article via one of our subscription databases. If we do, a Permalink can easily be created. This link, like any other web url, can then be inserted anywhere in your course shell. The steps at the bottom of this page show you how.
I found this article on a professional organization's website to which I have a paid membership. But my students don't, so they won't be able to access and read it. How can I find out if this same article is accessible in one of our databases so that they can read it?
Easy! You can email a librarian the citation information and we will be happy to check for you. If the article is available full-text, we will be happy to send you the Permalink.
Can't I just download the PDF (or scan the article and make a PDF), and then upload it to my course shell?
Technologically, that is possible. However, we do not recommend this practice as it is not in compliance with copyright law.
Will this Permalink take the student directly to the article? How does it work?
Whether on- or off-campus, the Permalink will take the student to the library's proxy server login page. They will simply log in (using their CC email address & password) and click Submit. They will then be taken directly to the full-text of the article.
I've already found the article in one of our databases. I just need to know how to get the Permalink. How do I do that?
Edens Library has access to a variety of subscription databases. The process might vary slightly depending on which database you are using. See below for database-specific instructions:
EBSCO DATABASES (Academic Search Complete, CMMC, ERIC, etc.)
For any databases that bear the EBSCO logo you would follow these steps:
It's almost as easy as EBSCO; there's just one extra sub-step.
Copy this bit of url: (This is called a "proxy prefix.")
and paste it in front of the Stable URL, with no spaces.
In other words, this
http://www.jstor.org/stable/495309 (Stable URL)
3. Place the 'new' link you have created anywhere you like in your course shell. You can treat it just like any other web url/link.
PRO-QUEST DATABASES (ABI/INFORM, New York Times Full-Text)
Very similar to JSTOR.
and paste it in front of the Document URL, with no spaces.
In other words, this
http://search.proquest.com/docview/733013913?accountid=39729 (Document URL)
4. Place the 'new' link you have created anywhere you like in your course shell. You can treat it just like any other web url/link.
