How can librarians better support faculty who teach research methods? What materials do students look for in their libraries? Sharlene Hesse-Biber, a celebrated research methods author and faculty member at Boston College, sought out the answers to these questions by working closely with her library to teach research methods to students. In this clip, Hesse-Biber shares insight on the type of research instruction that students receive in the classroom and where library research resources and support can fit into that process. Watch as she addresses several big questions surrounding research methods instruction such as:

  • How can faculty and librarians provide students with good exemplars of great research?
  • How can faculty and librarians support students conducting their first research project?
  • What do students learn at various levels of their academic careers?
