It’s the third Thursday of the month and a new edition of From the TRC is published to highlight another service or resource Joyner Library’s Teaching Resources Center (TRC) has to support the College of Education’s faculty and students. Today we’ll review a few changes to how students and faculty schedule the TRC’s instruction and consultation services.
These changes are meant to accomplish two things. First, students, faculty and staff will be able to schedule a library instruction session for their classes or a research consultation in less time. Second, these new forms will provide TRC librarians with all pertinent information at the beginning of the scheduling process. This will eliminate extra time used to email questions back and forth after a request is first submitted.
All links below can be found on the left hand side of the TRC’s web page.
Library Instruction for Classes
The Instruction Session Request Form is for professors seeking to schedule a TRC librarian to teach their students not only about Joyner Library’s resources and services, but also how the TRC specifically supports the College of Education and its faculty and students. This form can also be used to schedule whole class SMART Board workshops, and general orientations and tours of the TRC.
The semester may be half over, but there is still time to schedule a library instruction session for your class today!
Research Consultations – This form will offer students and faculty a direct link to TRC librarians who would like to schedule research consultations. Until now, Joyner Library’s Book a Librarian portal acted as the middle man, but this change will streamline the scheduling process..
SMART Board Consultations – Students and faculty can schedule one-on-one or small group consultations with the TRC’s SMART Certified Education Trainer. Each consultation is specifically tailored to meet your needs.
3D Printing Consultations – The TRC’s newest service! 3D printing consultations are one-on-one sessions that can range from a simple introduction to 3D printing to specific design needs for an academic project and everything in between. It is not necessary to have a finished product in mind when scheduling a consultation.
We hope to hear from you soon!
Until next time…Dan Z. in the TRC
