Created 2 February 2010; Published 26 March 2010

By PEPS

Presenters:Ann Zawistoski, Science Librarian and Kristin Partlo, Reference & Instruction Librarian for Social Sciences.

Ever been curious about what it means when your students tell you “I worked with a librarian on this project?” Since our liaison model started eight years ago, librarians have increased engagement with students throughout their college careers. We discussed what happens in typical interactions with students, our teaching goals for student appointments, and preliminary results from a pilot study of students who met with us in Fall term.

    LTC: Rare Looks: Inventing America: Understanding De Bry's Grands Voyages (1591) from Three Disciplines

    Presenters: Serena Zabin, Associate Professor of History; Ross Elfline, Assistant Professor of Art History; and Jackson Bryce, Marjorie Crabb Garbisch Professor of Classical Languages and the Liberal Arts.

    This panel highlighted the potential for using objects from Gould Library's Special Collections.  They displayed the College's copies of the first two volumes of Theodor De Bry's Grands Voyages, a multi-volume work that provided the European public with its first visual images of inhabitants of the New World.  Our volumes (1590 and 1591) deal with the founding of Virginia and Florida.  Colleagues from different departments – Serena Zabin (History), Ross Elfine (Art History), and Jackson Bryce (Classical Languages) –  each examined these magnificent books from the perspective of their discipline and teaching, and together discussed this rare book and how materials from Carleton's collections might enhance our courses.  Event co-sponsored by VIZ (Visualizing the Liberal Arts Initiative).
