Teaching, Learning & Scholarship
The McGraw-Page Library supports the mission of the college by providing quality resources and innovative services that foster lifelong learning through exploration, discovery and creativity. We support teaching, learning, research and discovery.
The Library offers resources and services to promote teaching effectiveness. The Librarians provide information sessions and workshops for faculty throughout the semester. The Head of Instructional Technology consults with the faculty on methods for student learning as well as course design and learning outcomes.
The Library faculty strive to collaborate with course instructors to teach students Digital & Information Literacy (DIL) and research skills. Librarians are prepared to work with instructors to incorporate DIL components into course syllabi and assignments. This often includes instruction sessions, one-on-one and group consultations, or other partnerships. Based on the America Library Association Information Competency Standards and the framework adopted by Bryn Mawr College, we teach students to:
Mapping Kerouac, A Digital Humanities Project @ Randolph-Macon College. The MKP is directed by Professor Robert Volpicelli, a faculty member in the English Department.
Your library maintains information and resources on research tools, writing academic books and journals, and publishing academic works. The Scholar’s Retreat, an annual event co-sponsored by the Library and the Higgins Academic Center, provides dedicated space and support for faculty to work on a writing or research project. The Faculty Info-to-Go sessions offer opportunities for faculty to share ideas and tips of scholarly publishing. Librarians can also help faculty identify citations and find publication venues.
