● Teaching an online course? We got you covered!
Introduction to Finding Books (90 minutes)

Since the students will be conducting live searches, this session will be more useful if they have an assignment topic ready to research.

Bibliographies & Citations (60 minutes)
Primary Resources: the CCAD Historic Art Book Collection (60 minutes, or longer if requested)
Artists’ Books (60 minutes, or longer if requested)

Magazine Meet-n-Greet (60 minutes)
Recommended for any class, any level. Let your students get to know the magazines and periodicals in their field! The librarian will introduce
them to magazines that we currently subscribe to as well as older and historical magazines in their
subject area. Students will be let loose to browse, and the group will reconvene to share and discuss what they have found.
Primary Resources: CCAD Digital Archive (45 - 60 minutes)
Recommended for any class, any level. The CCAD Digital Archive has a curated collection of over 600 images that can be used as primary
resources for historical and research purposes. This class will instruct the user on how to navigate the collection with searching methods, but also saving and exporting items for later use. For more information, go to our research guide at: https://ccad.libguides.com/archivesandlocalhistory.
LibGuides, like this one, have been created for each major at CCAD and many other subjects as well. The guides are designed to help students find and use library resources. You can embed them in CCAD Moodle and we can also make one just for your class.
