We will no longer approach course support with only a ‘subject expertise’ frame, but instead will begin
with an analysis of what the research/information component of the course is (or could be). Every
request for instruction will require a consultation that seeks answers to the following:
1. What is research/information need, regardless of the subject designation or course prefix?
2. What are the learning outcomes?
3. By what methods might the Libraries integrate and help achieve those learning outcomes?
4. Finally, determine whether disciplinary subject expertise or functional expertise is required to
meaningfully contribute.
Is it an expertise that the professor/instructor can bring to bear through
consultation? OR
Can a library colleague possessing a subject or functional expertise assist?
100-level courses (with the exception of UNIV 101, HNRS 190, and FYS 177 courses)
In most cases, requests will be referred to LibGuides and online tutorials.
