Description: This seminar included two library instruction sessions led by the course librarian. The first session focused on evaluating sources, with the goal of introducing the difference between popular and scholarly information as well as primary and secondary sources. Students were introduced to a historical event relevant to the course content through a video and then worked in groups to evaluate a source related to that event by filling in a worksheet collaboratively in GoogleDocs. The second session helped students create a research strategy for their final case study projects and prepared them to create an annotated bibliography on their chosen topic prior to writing their final paper. All of these activities were supported by an online course research guide.
