BorwZine LogoNew version of BrowZine, 1.2.1, is now available in the Apple App Store. In this new version we fix a pesky iOS7 bug and speeds up the loading of your holdings data. If you’ve already installed iO7, this new version has likely already automatically downloaded and installed. If you have not yet installed iOS7, please find the new version in the App Store. Thank you!

New Module: Incorporating Information Literacy into Instruction

The Van Pelt and Opie Library and the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) invite faculty and graduate students to attend a module, consisting of three one-hour sequential workshops, Incorporating Information Literacy into Instruction.

Instruction & Learning Librarian Sarah Lucchesi is delivering the module through the CTL’s University Teaching and Learning (UTL) Seminars program.  In this module, using the framework of Michigan Tech’s information literacy rubric for undergraduate students (learning goal #6), we will explore the library’s information resources, digital tools for keeping current in a field of study, and assignment elements that allow students to practice information literacy skills.

Faculty and graduate students are welcome to register only for this three workshop series, or as a part of the complete UTL Course Design program.

The workshop sessions are scheduled for Monday November 4th, 11th, and 18th from 11:00am-12:00pm in Library 242.  Please register by 12:00pm Friday November 1st.  If you have any questions, please contact instrlib@mtu.edu.
