Spring Courses @ the Library

Posted on November 2nd, 2012 by

Once again, we’re offering two courses in the spring, ones small enough to fit into even a fairly busy schedule.

NDL 301: Information Fluency is a .5 credit discussion-based and hands-on course that gives students a chance to dig into the tools for the literature of their major field and discuss the social and ethical dimensions of research. It meets weekly on Tuesday afternoons – but if that schedule doesn’t work, we can talk about setting up an alternate time by arrangement. This course was designed for students who are planning to go on to graduate school, but it’s also open to anyone interested in learning more about research. Last year’s syllabus can be found here.

NDL 201: Reading Workshop is a pass/fail .25 credit course that meets Wednesday afternoons for just the first half of the spring term. We’re going to read and discuss a novel by Sherman Alexie, Reservation Blues,¬†and students will also have a chance to read and review a book of their own choosing. Basically, this course is about exploring your personal reading tastes, developing your own reading list, and having a chance to read for fun. Last year’s syllabus is here.
