CFP - Teaching Undergraduate Student Research

Colleagues, Beth Bloom and I are the editors of Successful Strategies for Teaching Undergraduate Student Research, which will be published by Rowman and Littlefield in 2013. The book will be cross-marketed to the LIS community and teaching faculty. We are looking for authors to contribute case studies that highlight innovative library programs or library-faculty collaborative efforts. Each case study should be approximately 22-25 pages. The book’s abstract is included below: Abstract: One of the most difficult aspects of doing research for undergraduates is being able to frame the research question. This book, which includes contributions from well-known authors from a variety of disciplines—library science, communication, composition and history—helps students do precisely that. The authors focus on different stages of the research process and provide guidance on how to complete the initial, crucial steps for identifying and organizing a topic.
