Does your course require students to do research? The University Libraries offer research assistance to students in a variety of ways and has recently opened a new, state-of-the-art space for students to meet with a librarian for in-depth research assistance.
Below is a statement that you can include in your syllabus about how the Libraries can assist students in their research. Feel free to make any changes you feel are necessary (such as adding names and contact information of specific librarians, specific resources, etc.). Please contact your subject liaison librarian with any questions.
Suggested University Libraries Syllabus Statement:
The Libraries have a state-of-the-art space for students to meet with a librarian to get research assistance with course-related papers or assignments. Librarians can meet with students one-on-one or in small groups to discuss focusing a research topic, identifying & evaluating sources, and searching library resources effectively. To make a request, go to http://www.library.unlv.edu/consultation. You will be contacted by a librarian, with expertise in your discipline, major or course, within one work day. If you need immediate help, call 702-895-2100, text 702-800-3883, or stop by the research and information desk at any of the Libraries. You can also chat with a librarian at http://www.library.unlv.edu/ask/h3lp.html.
Contact your subject liaison librarian to schedule an instruction session for the fall semester.
