Information Literacy Partner of the Month

February/March 2017

Congratulations to Prof. Laura Marinaro of the Health and Sport Sciences Department, who is the SU Libraries’ Information Literacy Partner of the Month for February-March.  This is what Caroline Eckardt, Research/Instructional Services Librarian and liaison to Health and Sport Sciences, wrote in nominating her:

Laura teaches in the Department of Health & Sport Sciences and asks to bring her HLTH 317: Nutrition, Health, and Human Performance class to the library each semester. In this session, we explore subject-specific databases and advanced search techniques not typically covered in other sessions, as well as ways to evaluate different types of scientific literature. Students ultimately walk away with a better understanding of not only what's expected of them for the project at hand, but also of how to conduct good research within their field. It's always a pleasure to work with Laura and her students during the semester.
Caroline Eckardt Research/Instructional Librarian

It is for this willingness to creatively work with librarians to help students develop a comfort level with the library that we have chosen Prof. Marinaro as the SU Libraries’ Information Literacy Partner of the Month for February-March.

In addition to recognizing Prof. Marinaro on the SU Libraries’ website and social media, we also will purchase a book in a field of her choice to be added to the Libraries’ collection in her honor.  Please join me in congratulating Prof. Marinaro.

Sincerely,

Dr. Bea Hardy
Dean of Libraries and Instructional Resources
