Citing Insights Library Lunch April 12th or 16th

You are invited to a Library Luncheon, great way to celebrate National Library Week, and to discuss information literacy & student papers.

Please join us for a very brief presentation of a Library & Student Project called Citing Insights. We are developing tools to help assess information literacy and citations in student papers, and ultimately to help students research and writing. We would greatly appreciate your participation in a discussion that focuses on...

  • How do you evaluate sources used on student papers?
  • What process do you use to check citation styles?
  • What tools would you like to see that can make it easier to assess information sources in papers?

Enjoy food and conversation on evaluating information literacy, citations, and sources in student papers on Friday, April 12 from Noon - 1pm, or Tuesday, April 16 from 1-2pm in the Humboldt Scholars Lab, Library 3rd floor. Please RSVP: https://forms.gle/eor6XxkjBRvMPxqx9

Citing Insights is a Library Student Project to develop a useful tool for faculty, staff, librarians, graduate & teaching assistants, and tutors to evaluate information literacy and citations in student papers. So please let us know what you want to see. We aim to provide a beta-version this fall. The long-term goals of the project is to build a tool to improve student research and writing.

We greatly appreciate your time, hope you enjoy this opportunity to shape a useful tool, and enjoy lunch and the conversations. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know at: Cyril.Oberlander@Humboldt.edu or x3441.
