Portfolios: Student Recommendations

A common question we get at the reference desk is “Can I look at a portfolio? I want to see one, I want to see how one is formatted.” Our response has been to ask students to look through the catalog and identify a few that are in their area of interest, and then we would locate them in the locked area and allow students to peruse portfolios at their leisure.

Sometimes students asked for portfolios an instructor had recommended, but we thought it would be a good idea to make a list of student recommended portfolios. So, we began to ask students about portfolios they enjoyed, and which ones they would recommend to a fellow student. Here’s the list:

Bound Portfolios

Today, students can also look at bound portfolios that can circulate, all of which have met copyright and confidentiality requirements in the same manner as an independent study.

The Future
