Locating information is more complex today than ever before and identifying credible information is more complex still. Whether you are a student or a faculty member, the CBC Library provides a variety of ways to help you learn how to select and use our resources effectively to better meet your class-related information needs.
Handouts and Resource Guides. Our librarians have prepared paper handouts and online resource guides that will assist you with both general needs and with specific classes and/or assignments. We have created a 'CBC Library' section in Canvas with modules for FYI, English classes, Psychology classes, Health Sciences classes, etc. We also have a Library Blog with topic suggestions and numerous examples of database searches. Please contact us if you have any difficulty gaining access, or if you do not find what you need.
Tailored Instruction. Our librarians can assist you in a variety of ways to help integrate information literacy into your curriculum and help your students become better researchers. Instruction sessions focus on research skills, are directly tied to your course research assignment, and should be scheduled at point of need as close as possible to the time when students are just beginning their research. To schedule an instruction session, please complete the CBC Library Class Registration Form.
Reserve the Epicenter. If you need to reserve the Epicenter computer lab but do NOT need a librarian, please contact Reference at 509-542-4890 (on campus dial x2290) or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org; advance notice is essential, as students use these computers for research and other coursework when classes are not scheduled.
