Group Meetings

For Project 1, the entire group is expected to attend the Library Session.  Appointments can be made by registering at  For Projects 2-3 representatives of each group are required to meet with the librarian to make sure that your information strategy is complete and logical and that the topic chosen has been fully explored with the tools and resources available.  If the topic is the same for Assignment I up to 3 groups can register for the same appointment.  Additional group members are encouraged to attend.  Representatives are responsible for informing the entire group about the session.  These meetings usually take about 45-60 min and serve as a good orientation to the resources for each of the groups and their topics.  The meetings are highly recommended if you are unfamiliar with the resources and have not done an assignment such as this before.


Appointments are preferred for when as many of the group can attend.  One "captain" should contact Julia Gelfand noting the topic the group is working on and propose several times that work for the majority of the group.  She will respond and confirm the appointment.   All meetings will take place in a conference room or lab in the Multimedia Resource Center (MRC) at the Science Library (opposite door) and can be scheduled for days or evenings (occasionally on weekends if needed) by using the GoogleDoc link in each group assignment using UCI eMail addresses.
