Library Module Materials


To prepare your students for the library session, please assign the following item, due no later than the day before the library session:

I strongly recommend that you complete the tutorial prior to assigning it to students, one, in case they have questions, and two, to understand the framework we're using for the library workshop(s).

There is an option for students to email the results to themselves or to you at the end of the tutorial. If you would like to assign this for points, please give your students instructions on how to do this.
