What are Research Roadmaps?

Instruction librarians often come into a class and give one time, guest lectures on finding, evaluating, and integrating sources into a project or paper. The Research Roadmaps were designed to reinforce what the librarian covered or supplement when you are unable to schedule a guest lecture. The Roadmaps are tests with a "case study" feel. Students are presented with a research situation, asked to watch a brief video (under 2 minutes), and then answer a multiple choice question. The Roadmap can be uploaded to be included as a grade in your grade center or as a "complete". 

There are currently three versions of the Research Roadmap. You can choose to download all three or the one most closely aligned to your course. The Roadmaps are Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, and Public Health. Again, these are great tools to use alongside a library session. To book a librarian please complete the following form:
