Tredway Library

On April 4 and 5, 2014, the Tredway Library will host a conference to explore how faculty and librarians can best teach the research process, research writing, and working with primary sources. While our students are accustomed to living in a world filled with information and are often adept at finding sources, they struggle with sorting through search results, determining what sources are appropriate to the research need, evaluating arguments, and dealing with paper (rather than digital) sources.

We are inviting a diverse group of faculty, librarians, and administrators to this conference (we already have proposals from as far away as Pennsylvania and Ontario), and we want to extend a special invitation to Augustana faculty. Please consider attending the conference and/or proposing a session. If you have helped students master research skills, developed a project which has encouraged students to engage with original primary source materials, or fostered successful collaborations with librarians, we encourage you to propose a paper or session. We invite you to share the CFP with colleagues at other campuses who might wish to participate.

The conference keynote speaker is Sandra Jamieson, Director of Writing Across the Curriculum at Drew University and a principal researcher on the Citation Project (http://site.citationproject.net/), a multi-institution project which studies how student use sources. Jamieson will also conduct a workshop with faculty at the Friday Conversation on April 4.

Presentation proposal submissions are due February 15, 2014; the $50 registration fee will be waived for Augustana faculty.

More information, including the complete Call for Proposals, is available on the conference website:http://www.augustana.edu/x11824.xml?eventid=10806. Please don't hesitate to contact conference organizers Stefanie Bluemle, Sarah Horowitz, or Margi Rogal if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!
