  • Guidelines for Designing and Implementing Effective Library Research Assignments | Oviatt Library
    to familiarize students with research techniques and sources Tell the students what purpose the research assignment serves Describe the specifics of the assignment e g length acceptable types of sources format for references bibliography APA MLA etc Provide students with a printed list of sources if there are specific ones you want them to use and perhaps caution them against sources that you want them to avoid Include CSUN Library call numbers and or World Wide Web address es Library orientation lectures may be requested by calling 818 677 2277 or by filling out the online lecture request form located at Request an instructional session A list of Librarian Subject Specialties can be found at Librarian Subject Specialties Characteristics of Effective Assignments Clarity Give library research assignments in writing rather than verbally to reduce confusion Terminology Select terminology carefully and define any questionable words Students tend to take library research assignments at face value and may be confused by terms that they or a librarian cannot interpret definitively For example some instructors differentiate between magazines and journals while others use the terms interchangeably Does use the Library s computers or use the Internet mean CSUN Library s catalog or another computer database Does an assignment such as find an article on the Internet refer to the Internet in general or one of the Library s paid subscription databases which often offer full text versions of magazine and journal articles online Additionally do students understand what is meant by primary or secondary sources if you require their use Currency The Oviatt Library regularly updates and adds to its resources New sources and ways of accessing information occur with increasing frequency By checking your assignments regularly you can make certain that you are not asking your students to use outdated or withdrawn sources Appropriate Time Frame Remember to allow for students inexperience and for the availability of materials Pitfalls to Avoid Assuming that most students know the basics The information environment changes rapidly As a result students may need an introduction or re introduction to current Library resources Many students have no prior experience using the CSUN Library Even students who have attended a previous Library orientation may not have received information relevant to the needs of your current assignment Keep in mind that transfer or new graduate students may have no prior experience using the CSUN Library Thinking that required sources are readily available Double check current Library holdings as resources are often added or updated from semester to semester The CSUN Oviatt Library may not own the identical items that you have used at other libraries Consider re testing an assignment before giving it out in a new semester Giving the entire class the same assignment and sources If an entire class has the same assignment students find themselves competing for materials As an alternative for example instead of requiring the entire class to research the Enron bankruptcy scandal you might ask them to research corporate accounting and white collar
