30 RESEARCH INSTRUCTION FOR STUDENTS  Library faculty members are available to teach your students how to find research, and what to do once they find materials.  We are here to help.  Some classes lend themselves to hands-on training.  Library anxiety interferes with the research process.

31 LIBRARY VISITS FOR STUDENTS  Helm-Cravens Library has three hands-on classrooms, including a new state-of-the-art lab with 29 computers.  Students can work on research with the librarian as a “guide.”  On-site instruction is also available in the Educational Resources Center, the Special Collections Library, and on the regional campuses in Elizabethtown/Ft. Knox, Glasgow, and Owensboro.  Bringing students to the library is important.

32 FLIP THE CLASSROOM!  Have your students view our research tutorials before they come.  Use our audio tour podcast to help students find their way around the library.

33 RESEARCH ASSIGNMENTS IN YOUR CLASSES? WE CAN HELP!  Subject Specialists can help you design research assignments and projects.  Formative assessments—Did students learn from library instruction sessions?  Library quizzes, pre-test/post- test, source evaluation exercises, etc.  Term papers, research diaries, market research, evidence- based healthcare, etc.
