The Effectiveness Of Library Instruction For Graduate/Professional Students: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Adelia B. Grabowsky, Liza J. Weisbrod Feb 2020

The Effectiveness Of Library Instruction For Graduate/Professional Students: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Adelia B. Grabowsky, Liza J. Weisbrod

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Library instruction to improve information literacy (IL) is often considered essential only for undergraduates. However, students in graduate/professional programs do not always have the requisite skills needed for graduate level study and research, which suggests they may also benefit from library instruction targeted specifically to graduate students. This study used a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the effectiveness of library instruction for increasing IL skills and/or knowledge among graduate and professional students. The authors searched seven databases to identify studies published in English between 2000 and 2019 that reported on library instruction for graduate or professional students ...

Assessing The Impacts Of Library Instruction Sessions On Knowledge Acquisition And Retention In Biology Undergraduates, Aditi Bandyopadhyay Nov 2018

Assessing The Impacts Of Library Instruction Sessions On Knowledge Acquisition And Retention In Biology Undergraduates, Aditi Bandyopadhyay

Upstate New York Science Librarians Conference

This study assessed the effectiveness of one-shot library instruction sessions on knowledge acquisition and retention in Biology undergraduate students. In early Spring 2018 semester, the students enrolled in six sessions of Bio 112 at Adelphi University attended library instruction classes to learn about scientific literature. One-shot library instruction sessions were conducted to teach students in each section how to identify research, review and popular science magazine articles. A post-instruction test was conducted in late April and early May, 2018, to determine whether the students retained information from library instruction classes. The responses from both pre- and post-instruction sessions were compared ...


Research As Inquiry, Social Justice, And The Particularist Challenges Of Religious Traditions In An Age Of Terror And Hate Jun 2017

Research As Inquiry, Social Justice, And The Particularist Challenges Of Religious Traditions In An Age Of Terror And Hate

Desirae Zingarelli-Sweet

Although the term “social justice” itself is commonly attributed to a 19th century Catholic theologian, the concept of social justice and imperatives to work toward its realization are integral to virtually all religious and spiritual traditions. Religious traditions have historically shaped institutions and power relationships in profound ways and continue to do so alongside the rise of the “nones” (those with no religious affiliation). Moreover, the complex interplay between religious and other cultural, racial, ethnic, lingual, political, and economic forces render a critical social analysis that leaves out religious factors woefully incomplete. Engaging these traditions, then, is essential for critically ...

Redesigning An Fye Library Module: Cleveland Based Learning, Ben Richards

Michael Schwartz Library Publications

After several years of consistently offering the same one-shot session and library assignment in the First Year Experience seminar, feedback from several stakeholders in the course indicated it was time to change things up. The resulting lesson plan reached to serve information literacy outcomes while encouraging first year students to explore their new environment, engage with their city’s history, and learn to see research as a problem solving tool. Attendees will learn in what ways it was successful and what lessons were learned along the way.

The Impact Of An Online Library Skills Course On A Face To Face Instruction Program, Rachel Mulvihill, Carrie Moran, Corinne Bishop Sep 2015

The Impact Of An Online Library Skills Course On A Face To Face Instruction Program, Rachel Mulvihill, Carrie Moran, Corinne Bishop

Rachel Mulvihill

In 2013, an online information literacy skills course was implemented for two core courses (English Composition II and Strategies for Success) at a large research university. This short online unit, Introduction to Library Research Strategies, is offered via the campus learning management system, Canvas. It can be used as a replacement for face-to-face instruction, or as a pre-assignment to “flip” library instruction. Now two years into the project, we will examine our instruction statistics to see how it has impacted the program overall. Results from an instructor survey and a librarian survey will also be reviewed.
Questions that we will ...

Megan N. O'Donnell

Track your research impact beyond citations! Librarians of any expertise level will learn how to get started with alternative research metrics -- or altmetrics -- at their institution. Join us to hear about how libraries of any size, with any budget, can help their faculty, researchers, and graduate students to assess their research impact in new ways. In the fall of 2014, we hosted our first institution-wide altmetrics workshops. Join us to hear about how we prepared, marketed, and facilitated a productive and enthusiastically received hands-on session which led to new campus partnerships with the library.

Library Instruction Using Mobile Devices, Barbara Glackin, Amy E. Vecchione Feb 2013

Library Instruction Using Mobile Devices, Barbara Glackin, Amy E. Vecchione

Amy E. Vecchione

Albertsons Library has successfully leveraged the use mobile devices for helping students learn research skills. Librarians are now going to classrooms and teaching two instruction sessions — 1) finding information and 2) evaluating information. The library sessions provide hands-on, active learning opportunities for student teams, built around the use of iPads to explore library resources. In fall 2012, this included instruction to seventy-four classes in Boise State's "University Foundations 100" course, the first course in our general education program. Ten classes of junior level transfer students received an additional session — 3) advanced searching techniques. The instruction curriculum is purposefully designed ...


Click Or Poll Your Way To An Interactive Library Instruction, Sarah Gewirtz Oct 2011

Click Or Poll Your Way To An Interactive Library Instruction, Sarah Gewirtz

Library Staff Publications

Many of us have gotten the blank stare when we ask students, “Do you have any questions?” or “Can anyone give me a search term to try?” This might be the only time we see them. We want to make a positive impression but also make sure they learn something during their short time. How can we do all of that? Easy! Use Clickers (Audience Response Systems) or an online version like PollEverywhere.com. During this presentation, Sarah discussed the questions she’s asked and responses she’s gotten from classes she’s taught using both Clickers and PollEverywhere.com ...


Worst Case Scenario, Julie S. George, Clay Howard Sep 2011

Worst Case Scenario, Julie S. George, Clay Howard

Julie S George

In recent years, an unsustainable economic model has emerged in many academic libraries—skyrocketing journal subscription costs coupled with diminishing materials budgets. What if vendor prices for journal subscriptions rise so fast that our budgets just can’t keep pace? Could we continue to meet the needs of our patrons if we had to cut EBSCO and other expensive aggregator databases? And for those of us charged with teaching good research skills, how would instruction change? In this interactive session we will tackle the above questions, present some open source alternatives to subscription databases, and discuss “vendor-free” information literacy instruction.

Letting Students Take The Lead: Active Learning In The Library Classroom, Ann Marie Smeraldi

Ann Marie Smeraldi

Each fall reluctant first year students are herded into the academic library for a one-shot, sixty minute library session. Desperate to keep students’ eyes from glossing over and fingers from texting, librarians have tried everything from treasure hunts and games to murder mysteries and raves. But what if you do not have the time, staff, budget, or energy to orchestrate an hour of edutainment for thousands of students? In this session you will discover how one librarian managed to engage her students and reduce her stress by surrendering control and allowing the students to take the lead in the classroom ...
