My name is Martinique Hallerduff. I am the librarian for your class.
A little about me: I've been at Oakton for one year, but I've been working as a librarian at other colleges and universities around Chicago for 15 years. I love helping students with research while recognizing that research often involves a lot of stress for students. I'm interested in feminist and anti-racist teaching and librarianship and have devoted much of my career to these interests. I've lived in the city of Chicago for almost 20 years, but I'm originally from Michigan. I am also a storyteller with 2nd Story Chicago.
Since we can't meet in person, this guide replaces a full class. Plan to work your way through each page, watching videos, reading, and completing small activities. I've designed this work to make completing your research projects easier and to make learning about doing college-level research at Oakton less confusing than it otherwise might be.
The pages go in order. You'll start with Your Assignment and work your way down. At any point, if you have questions, please check the "Ask the Librarian" tab (to your left if you're on a computer, or up above if you're on a phone) for my contact information or to post a question.
