The Lake Land College Library is here to help all faculty in your goal of teaching students to find, evaluate, and use information effectively. To this end, we offer the following librarian's perspective on creating effective library and research assignments.
More practical advice on working with the library can be found (in PDF format) at Positive Relationships for Productive Library Assignments. (NISOD Innovation Abstracts, Vol. 26, No.7, March 5, 2004.)
For a more thorough discussion of many of these issues, please see the article "Library Assignments" by Necia Parker-Gibson, appearing in College Teaching, Vol 49, Issue 2, Spring, 2001.
