A requirement of many course assignments is the use of secondary research. Though students may rely on search engine queries, assignments often require the use of catalogue databases. It has been noted that there is confusion surrounding the navigation of many online libraries (Barton & Mak, 2012). Thus, upon entry to university it may be essential for students to become familiar with catalogues and library pursuits. More specifically, students may benefit from hands-on, in-class activities that provide direction and assistance in utilizing institution library databases. Activities such as this may foster appropriate research skills, while maintaining engagement of students. Additionally, becoming fluent in library navigation may help to diminish student frustration and enhance secondary research efficacy. Instructors can lead research activities in their classes, or they can utilize services during class time that are accessible through the campus library.
