For Rhetoric Instructors

Fall 2021 Updates

  • We look forward to working with you and providing library and information literacy instruction for your courses! Request your instruction sessions using the Rhetoric Library Instruction Request form.
  • Need assistance finding resources for your research? Want to talk through your topic or search for additional perspectives? We've got online meetings with librarians available! Schedule a consultation with a librarian and encourage your students to do so as well.
  • Chat with librarians over IM and encourage your students to do so as well. Our librarians are available 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday.
  • Checkout the Fall 2021 Main Library Gallery exhibition, From Revolutionary Outcast to a Man of God: Dostoevsky at 200. Curated by Dr. Anna Barker, University of Iowa professor of Russian literature, the exhibition covers the entirety of Dostoevsky’s prolific literary career. His youth, his years of exile in Siberia, a period of gambling addiction, and his philosophical and theological teachings are explored in the context of Russian historical events and many of his most famous novels, from Poor Folk to The Brothers Karamazov. Interested in bringing your class in for a tour? Please do. We've also got a classroom ready assignment/activity mapped to Rhetoric learning objectives that you can use to guide student engagement with exhibit materials. 
  • Working on your own research and scholarship? Check out the UI Libraries Scholarly Impact Department. The UI Libraries’ Scholarly Impact department is committed to increasing public access to information and to the advancement of knowledge. We support UI researchers and scholars in maximizing the impact of their research and creative works.
