Navigating Ekstrom via Online 360° Views

Ekstrom Library’s website now offers an online 360° feature that will help students navigate the library’s interior spaces. The feature includes information “bubbles” that allow users to click to learn more about a certain area. For example, on the first floor-east side, informative hubs are provided for Research Assistants and Instruction (RAI), the Digital Media Suite (DMS), REACH, and the Writing Center.

The project resulted from feedback gleaned during the University Libraries’ Library Student Advisory Board (LSAB) meetings in which students expressed a need for clearer ways to navigate the library. Jason Zahrndt, of the DMS, created a prototype of the Learning Commons in Ekstrom (first floor-east) using the application RoundMe. Libraries Website Director Terri Holtze embedded it into Ekstrom’s webpage.

The feature is linked to the site’s floor plans and currently offers 360° views of the first and second floors. Further floors are currently in the works.

Research DIY: Self-Guided Library

By Amber Willenborg

Research assignments can lead to enlightenment, but, as the scholarship on information literacy indicates, the path isn’t easy. The Project Information Literacy Freshmen Study found that students face many challenges with finding and using information, from locating appropriate databases to reading research articles and evaluating information. With this in mind, and in direct response to faculty requests for a one-stop research resource for students, the library has unveiled our new Research DIY website.

choose topic

Research DIY is an online tool featuring visually appealing infographics, videos, and step-by-step instructions to help students get started with a wide variety of research tasks. The PIL Freshmen Study revealed that students struggle most with formulating online searches, selecting and locating research resources, and reading and comprehending materials. On the DIY website, students will find resources that directly address these struggles: a video on generating keywords for searching, numerous videos with instructions for finding a variety of source types like scholarly articles, and an infographic on how to approach reading research articles. Research DIY also includes content created in conjunction with the University Writing Center to help students appropriately integrate sources into their research papers.

ask yourself

While the website is easy for students to find and use on their own, we encourage instructors to link to the site on Blackboard or in their syllabus, or direct students to sections of the website that would be helpful for particular assignments. In addition to Research DIY, the library offers a variety of teaching tools including online learning modules for practice with information literacy concepts and research guides for more in-depth information on research topics and resources. Librarians are also available to create custom content tailored to your class or assignment. The path may not be easy, but the library is here to illuminate your way forward to success.
