Description

Have you noticed that the way we typically describe information sources has more to do with what the sources are than on what writers might do with them? In Fall 2013, an instruction librarian at Lewis & Clark College partnered with a professor teaching Rhetorical Criticism to depart from the traditional, search-oriented library instruction session. Instead the librarian guided students as they critically appraised the works cited in a peer reviewed journal article using the rhetorical vocabulary of BEAM.

Join us as we explore BEAM as one tool for framing processes of academic research and writing. And be a part of a conversation that will look at bigger issues of language and adaptability in library instruction environments.
