April, 2022 Workshops:

Perma.cc: Preventing “Link Rot” in Bibliographies

Facilitator: Sarah Burns Feyl, MA, MLS, Head of Library Teaching & Learning Services

Did you know? Over 50% of cited links in Supreme Court opinions no longer point to the intended page and one in five articles suffers from reference rot. Using persistent links such as digital object identifiers (DOIs) when citing previous research in the peer-reviewed literature is usually an effective way of pointing to a source. However, if your scholarship depends on citing or footnoting websites, or anything without a persistent link, there is a good chance these links will not work, or the content will have disappeared or changed, 5 or 10 or 20 years from now.  Join us in this seminar to learn about the Perma.CC tool which will help you to create permanent links to websites in your bibliographies.

Bring the New York Times into Your Classroom

Facilitator: Sarah Burns Feyl, MA, MLS, Head of Library Teaching & Learning Services

Join us in this seminar to learn about the New York Times’ inEducation and Learning Network resources. inEducation is designed to help professors and students connect what’s happening in the news with their studies. Across 16 disciplines, leading professors contribute weekly posts featuring a piece of journalism and prompts for discussion, exploration, and analysis. These prompts can be used to help bring current events into the classroom or can be shared with students to spark conversation and debate. The Learning Network offers Activities for Students and Resources for Teachers. The Learning Network publishes about 1,000 teaching resources each school year, all using Times content — articles, essays, images, videos, graphics and podcasts — as teaching tools across subject areas. Content includes Lesson plans, News and geography quizzes, Student opinion questions and writing prompts, Picture and graph prompts, and Current events conversations.

Pace Library Instructional Services: Teaching Partners for Student Success 

Facilitators: Jessica Kiebler, Instructional Services Librarian and Gina Levitan, First Year Outreach Services Librarian

Key skill sets for Pace students include identifying, retrieving, and evaluating information to develop a research practice and a relationship with information that encourages lifelong learning. While faculty may expect that students have acquired information literacy and research skills from high school and some college courses, this may not be the case. Literature shows that many students, especially undergraduates, have a marked overconfidence in their research skills. The Library’s Instructional Services (IS) Team works with you to design instruction that helps students navigate the Library’s resources and services, understand how information systems impact sources, and use discipline-specific resources in order to develop information literacy and research skills that can be applied directly to their current assignments. In this session, we will provide an overview of the IS Team’s workflow, pedagogy, and the types of instruction we can facilitate for you and your students. Learn about the synchronous and asynchronous teaching methods and activities used by the members of the team, including in-classroom lessons, Zoom sessions, Zines, instructional videos, interactive online research tutorials, and active learning platforms such as Padlet and Kahoot.
