We have a beautiful library and it should be a place where ideas come together, not a place of struggle and hardship. Good assignments should foster an appreciation for scholarship and the research process. A good assignment should also challenge students to critically evaluate information.
Work with your liaison librarian to develop a research assignment that is practical, effective and avoids frustration. We can test the assignment to make sure the library has appropriate resources to support the assignment and to ensure students won't run into any snags along the way.
