First-Year Library Research Sessions: Information Literacy & Assessment in Action
MetadataShow full item record
This poster examines the library research sessions integrated into nearly 400 sections of the first-year writing course at a public, four-year institution. In these sessions, first-year students explore the research process through a combination of activities, discussions, and resource demonstrations. A one-sentence survey provided to students shows they leave these sessions with an enhanced understanding of the research process, increased confidence in their ability to find and access relevant library resources, and a higher level of comfort with library spaces and library instructors. This poster explores the large-scale student learning assessment process, which could be adapted for use at institutions.
