A well-designed library assignment is an excellent teaching tool for building your students' critical thinking and research skills. They should accomplish two things: increased understanding of the process of finding and evaluating information and increased knowledge of a subject. The librarians at Skyline College Library are happy to help you develop library assignments that will support your teaching goals. We can also do research workshops for your classes. (Complete the Research Workshop Request Form to schedule a research workshop.)
