Information Literacy Concepts, an open educational resource created by David Hisle, learning technologies librarian, and Katy Kavanagh Webb, head of research and instructional services, introduces high school, community college and college students to information literacy topics and gives them an overview of how to conduct their own research.
“We are thrilled by the opportunity to display this exhibition in various community locations,” said Heather White, assistant director for assessment and engagement. “It is central to Joyner Library’s mission to not only help document and preserve regional history and culture, but to also make it publically available.”
Joyner Library announced the winners of its annual W. Keats Sparrow Writing Award for student research during an Aug. 23 ceremony held in the Janice L. Faulkner Gallery, located on the second floor of the library. “Every August as the fall semester begins, we have the pleasure of recognizing three students whose English composition papers were selected for the W. Keats Sparrow Award,” said Jan Lewis, director for Joyner Library. “It is a wonderful way to start the new academic year and reaffirm the close connections between Joyner Library and the Department of English.”
The TRC serves students enrolled in teacher education programs and educators in Eastern NC.
Joyner Library's Special Collections includes Manuscripts and Rare Books, University Archives, and the NC Collection.
