ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the Mellon Library/Faculty Fellows for Undergraduate Research, a four-year project at the University of California in Berkeley to incorporate research-based learning in undergraduate courses. The project uses a team approach to help faculty members each year revise courses to incorporate research-based learning. It aims to improve students' information literacy, research skills, and effective use of information resources. Faculty members are selected on a competitive basis to participate in the program each year and are compensated for a $2,000 stipend. According to project director Elisabeth Dupuis, the greatest concern is the amount of time a major course revision takes and how it might distract faculty from their regular work.
