Research Hour at the FMHI Library

Wednesday, May 28th, 2014 | Posted in Faculty, News, Services by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

Finalizing your fall semester syllabi? Consider adding a “Research Hour” at the FMHI Research Library (MHC 1727).

Research Hours help you facilitate student papers and projects by allowing you to work directly with your students as they begin navigating their research assignments. We provide the classroom, computers, and a 5-minute overview of library resources, while you provide guidance on the topics, problems, questions, designs, or sources considered by your students.

Research Hours requiring the use of the FMHI Library Teaching Lab are currently limited to smaller classes (20-25 students) and must be scheduled at least two weeks prior to the requested date and time. To schedule, contact librarian Tomaro Taylor at tomaro@usf.edu.
