LIBBIS FOR COMPOSITION 102, 102H AND HONORS 101 STUDENTS​

How do you start research? 
Where do you find scholarly articles? 
What's an easy way to manage information? 
How do you cite online sources?

As part of COMP-102, -102H, and HONR-101, you will attend two library workshops, or LIBBIs, that will answer these questions and provide you with essential research tools. You will learn basic skills to get started on and successfully complete your research assignment with ease and efficiency! 

WHEN
You choose the date and time that work with your schedule. View the LIBBI Schedule Calendar  to make your selection from available Part 1 and Part 2 sessions. For the semester, when the LIBBIs are over there is no way to make them up.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
Sign up in Vision and attend one LIBBI-102COMP-1 (part 1) session and one LIBBI-102COMP-2 (part 2) session. There is nothing to do in preparation for attending the LIBBIs, just show up on time in the LIL.

  • Sign up early to get a session that works with your schedule.
  • Attendance is required. Non-attendance results in a letter grade consequence. See your course syllabus for more information on the two LIBBI requirements.
  • You must attend Part 1 before Part 2.
  • Be on time; sessions need to start promptly. Attendance is taken at the start of the session and given to your professors.  If you are unfamiliar with the LIL location, you may want to visit the area prior to your session so you arrive on time. Late arrivals who miss the attendance check-in will need to attend a different session.
  •  Sessions last 1 hour and 15 minutes. To receive credit for attending you will need to stay until the session is over. Arrange your schedule, or select a LIBBI session, accordingly.

WHAT TO BRING
You will need your network login (SSO). If your login does not work, contact the IT Concierge Desk at studenthelpdesk@oru.edu, 918.495.6321, or it.oru.edu. 

See: Composition 102, 102H, and HONR-101 Library Course Research Guide to get started on your research.
