Dear Karen and Eng 110 Faculty,
We want to notify you all of the digital English 110 Library guides created over the summer.
They reflect topic areas that comprise the Freshmen Year Initiative Learning Communities and are now accessible via the Eng 110 blog that we’ve all been using to advance the English 110 / FYI initiative.
There are “Instructor Information,” entries with helpful information literacy tips and strategies. Additionally, there are also posted “student information literacy practice activities,” for some of the topic areas. Please help us to prioritize further resources that you think will be useful in supporting the English 110 sections.
Please also know about the general Eng 110 library instruction guide created by Prof Nancy Foasberg; ttp://qcpages.qc.cuny.edu/library/research/guides/english/english110.php
We hope these resources augment the activities of all English 110 instructors and sections; both those that have elected to schedule in-house Library visits as well as those that are taking a “distant ed.,” pedagogical approach for their sections.
We remind you all that in-library sessions can be scheduled by contacting our instructional services office at 781-997-3747. For more detailed support information please view: http://qcpages.qc.cuny.edu/library/research/instruction/scheduling.php
Let us know what you think. Please send comments and requests to Professors Nancy Foasberg, (x73751 or email@example.com) and Michael Miller (x73761 or Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org).
Have a great semester! Talk to you soon.
Prof. Michael J. Miller, Associate Librarian for Public Services. 26 Aug. 2010
