We share resources with your students
Email us or fill out the purchase form to request e/books for your course -- we can try to add ebooks even mid-semester as your classes move online. (Ebook licenses depend on the publisher: some ebooks can be licensed for unlimited users while others limit to 2-3 readers at a time).
Printed Course Reserves: To reserve personal or library materials on two-hour loan for your students, fill out a request here.
Resources in bCourses: To add links to the library’s ebooks and online articles, see this guide.
We can help integrate the library into your online or in-person curriculum
We can work with you to develop library components for your classes in anthropology:
Assign exercises that encourage students to develop topics in conversation with each other and available resources, or that model how to use library resources while off-campus.
Assign an annotated bibliography so that students a) research earlier in the term and b) learn to identify types and quality of sources.
Have students keep a research diary that tracks their development of ideas for a topic, and reflects on their experience in library research--giving something to talk about when we meet.
Model citation chaining, so that students can see how to go from one article to related articles in a bibliography or in Google Scholar.
Schedule a class using archival materials at the Bancroft, so that students become familiar with historical materials beyond the contemporary book and journal article.
