Posted by: | December 10, 2009 | Comments Off on December – Lam Library’s “Jump-Start Your Research Guide” Wins an Award

The David Lam Librarians have been recognized by their colleagues in other academic libraries in BC for their Jump-Start Your Research Guide. The guide, created to assist students with the critical thinking process necessary for approaching secondary market research, has won a prize in the ALPS LINK Gold Medal Contest. The contest invites academic librarians to submit learning objects which can be used by librarians at other universities and colleges in BC.  ALPS (Academic Librarians in Public Service) is part of the BC Library Association.

Developed this summer after a discussion about how best to help students apply critical thinking skills to secondary research, the guide has been handed out to undergraduates and graduates in library presentations and at our reference desk. It can save students time by helping them create an effective research strategy and also helps the librarians to understand their research topics more clearly.

There are two versions of the tool; one for undergraduate students and one for graduate students. Click here to access the guides  on David Lam Library website.
