Just a reminder about University 1010K (University Seminar). Regardless of the instructor, the class Web site, syllabus and assignments are at http://www.mtsu.edu/~studskl (easily located by Googling MTSU study skills).
Students can't always clearly articulate their question, but you can interpret most questions by looking at the Web site, the syllabus, and/or assignment. The current assignment is a scavenger hunt about the Web site itself: http://frank.mtsu.edu/~studskl/scavweb.html
Yes, an idea more productive than writing this blog post would be for someone like the instruction librarian to coordinate with the course coordinator so the assignments are clear and effective, but our instruction librarian hasn't done so.
