Want to improve research skills?—hold class in the Library!

Dr. Lyle Story working with his Introduction to Biblical Languages class in the Library.
Professors and instructors looking for creative ways to improve their students’ research skills might consider borrowing an idea from Divinity professor Dr. Lyle Storey, who regularly holds class in the Library Reference area, right in the vicinity of the resources he wants his students to understand how to use. According to Dr. Storey, holding class in the Library has proved an effective way to introduce students to Greek and Hebrew language resources.

The Library faculty encourages faculty members to hold a class inside the Library. If desired, a librarian subject specialist can be present to work with students in their research. To reserve the tables in the Reference area for a session, please contact your school’s Library liaison.
