- will need at minimum 80 minutes
What goals would you like to see achieved with this service?: I would like for my students to become familiar with using the library website, how to locate material in journal databases, and how to use services like citation finder and interlibrary loan. The students will be starting on an extended research project based in primary sources from the TTU Archives, specifically on the topic of the history of film culture on the TTU campus, looking at things like student film societies, filmmaking clubs, film in instruction, and so forth. While most of their research will take place at the Southwest Collection, I also expect that they will need to find secondary sources and supporting material through the Library. I have requested another library visit earlier in the semester, where they will learn how to use the microfilm collection, so we will have been to the library before, but we won't have had the broader survey of how to use its services.
