Often we make the mistake to assume that students are "tech savy" therefore they can do library related research. Project Information Literacy is a national study about early adults and their information-seeking behaviors, competencies, and the challenges they face when conducting research in the digital age.
The Eckerd College Librarians are here to help your students with every step of the research process. Please contact us to collaborate on assignments and provide the best instruction to meet your students needs.
The two short videos below summarize parts of the Project Information Literacy findings in relation to frustations students face when given a research assignment and how they rely on assignment handouts.
If we don't have an item you need, you may request that we get it for you from another library.
Once you fill out a request form you will receive an email when your items arrive; articles can be picked up online via your interlibrary loan account, and books can be picked up at the Circulation Desk.
There is normally no charge for this service. However, faculty members receive a $25 annual stipend to help cover the cost of acquiring items that we are unable to obtain for free. Please use your Eckerd College email userid and password to register for an ILL account.
