In an ever-evolving information ecosystem, the majority of students are saying that research is more difficult for them than ever before (Project Information Literacy). At Sonoma State University, we believed that students’ struggle came from assigning a “research paper.” A research paper frequently teaches students to find the right answer, rather than asking the right questions. This session will detail how, in collaboration with first-year composition instructors, the library is moving away from teaching one-shot sessions for the “research paper” and towards participatory and collaborative instruction surrounding the frame Research as Inquiry. The session will highlight how a research paper assignment departs from the information literacy framework, and the means one library took to teach the frames.
