The University Libraries offer a 2-session sequence of Library Instruction Sessions for  EN 102, 103 and 104 throughout the fall, spring, and summer terms. For more information about the content of these sessions, please visit our LibGuide for EN102 and EN103 Instructors! These sessions are designed as working sessions and must be scheduled to coincide with an assignment requiring library research. 

Both sessions will utilize the UA Libraries discovery tool, SCOUT, which searches the UA Libraries’ physical and electronic holdings as well as a variety of databases such as Academic Search Premier. As the skills and concepts that students learn are universally applicable, individual databases will not be covered unless specifically requested by the instructor. The basic functionality of SCOUT will be introduced to students prior to library sessions through the library’s SCOUT: Basic Search and SCOUT: Advanced Search video tutorials, accessible through the Library’s YouTube channel (UofAlabamaLibraries) or through the EN 102, 103 and 104 LibGuides. We encourage you to include these video tutorials in your blackboard course shells and in your syllabus, as this information will not be covered in depth during face to face library instruction sessions. Convenient links that you can include on your syllabus or embed into your Blackboard course shell are provided on the resources tab of each of the Instructors LibGuides.

Help us make these sessions a success by observing the following guidelines:

  • For Spring 2014 please submit instruction requests before January 17th.
  • Instructors must submit a separate form for each section they are teaching.
  • Instructors must schedule the session to coincide with a research assignment.
  • Instructors should be present during the session.
The Spring 100-Level English Library Sign-ups will be closed on January 17.  Please contact Sara if you need library assistance.
