  • Retaining Students by Embedding Librarians into Undergraduate Research
    • Authors: (Jeffrey A. Knapp; Nicholas J. Rowland, Eric P. Charles)

      Purpose - To identify an important area for librarians to positively impact student retention.Design/methodology/approach - This programmatic and conceptual piece describes how embedding librarians into the growing enterprise of undergraduate research experiences (UREs) lays a framework for a context in which libraries and librarians directly contribute to the retention of undergraduate students.Findings - Librarians are capable of directly contributing to the retention of students. While their efforts, it is contended, contribute routinely and to the actual retention of students, it is difficult for their efforts to register in the assessment of retention used by administrators. This discrepancy can be solved if librarians play a more explicit (and quantifiable) role in retaining students.Research limitations/implications - UREs are a growing, but generally untapped trend for librarians; however, because UREs generally correlate with academic success and student retention, they offer librarians a useful entry point to contribute to the academic mission of colleges and universities, and in a measurable way.Practical implications - Embedded librarianship poses a number of hurdles for its practitioners; however, it also has the potential for libraries and librarians to become more explicitly connected to overall institutional goals and strengthen their positions in the academy more broadly.Originality/value - Systematically embedding librarians into UREs is not strongly represented in the literature.

  • Promoting Lifelong Learning through Government Document Information
           Literacy: Curriculum and Learning Assessment in the Government Document
           Information Literacy Program (GDILP) at Washington State University
    • Authors: (B. Jane Scales; Marilyn Von Seggern)

      Purpose - This paper reports on the development and assessment of a government document information literacy curriculum by librarians at Washington State University. The authors describe their pedagogical and assessment goals, and explore the learning outcomes by participating sophomore and junior English composition students.Design/methodology/approach - Instruction librarians adopted ACRL standards to government information in order to address difficulties undergraduates have in identifying and evaluating common federal government resources. Learning outcomes are measured with a mixed-methods approach including pre- and post-tests, in-class worksheets, and student bibliographies.Findings - Overall, the project improved government document information literacy in the student groups that participated.Research limitations/implications - There are many questions the project raises that the authors cannot address. Does the curriculum have any long term impact on the students? Will it make students who participated more likely to use government information when job seeking, or when making important decisions?Originality/value - The project uniquely targets a population for which there has been little research on regarding government information literacy – undergraduates who have already received introductory library instruction, but who are not yet researching upper-division, discipline-specific topics.

  • Text A Librarian: A Look from the User Perspective
    • Authors: (Lili Luo)

      Purpose - This paper provides an in-depth examination of the use and non-use of text reference service among library users, seeking to evaluate the service from library users’ perspective and hence enhance the professional understanding of the best practices of text reference service.Design/methodology/approach - A survey study was conducted among library users, examining user demographics, user’s texting behavior, user awareness of text reference service, and users’ use or non-use of the service.Findings - Findings suggest that the majority of library users have not used the service and their non-use is primarily attributed to their lack of awareness. Users who have used the service report a high degree of satisfaction and appreciate the convenience, ease of use and speediness of the service.Practical implications - The paper helps interested libraries develop an enriched view of texting’s affordance as a reference service venue and thus make more informed decisions in successfully implementing the service. Originality/value - Text reference is the most recent reference development and it does not have a large body of literature. Current reports are primarily of a single library’s experience and rarely investigate users’ experience with text reference service. This paper fills the void in the literature by presenting a thorough study of text reference service from the user’s point of view.

  • Evaluating an Instruction Program with Various Assessment Measures
    • Authors: (Sarah R. Gewirtz)

      Purpose - This paper demonstrates how the author’s library was able to enhance the collaborative learning and teaching environment, with secondary goals to improve teaching effectiveness and increase sharing among librarians of ideas and techniques used in First Year Student sessions. Design/methodology/approach - This paper describes the various measures of assessment (peer-to-peer, student feedback and self-reflection) that the College of St. Benedict (CSB) and St. John’s University (SJU) Libraries implemented in 2011. The methods were used to improve teaching by listening to peers, getting feedback from students and by also doing self-reflection. Many librarians were able to make changes that were beneficial to their teaching sessions. Findings - The outcome allowed librarians to incorporate new ideas into their own instruction sessions; re-evaluate teaching methods based on student feedback; and, to realize that self-assessment was beneficial. More importantly, it led to the development of Learning Goals for First Year Students. Originality/value - This is a significant contribution to the field of librarianship due to the lack of publications on the observations of peers. Articles about peer-to-peer feedback for librarians whose employment duties entail library instruction were difficult to find. Much of the literature focuses on faculty (who are not librarians) who go through peer-to-peer observations for their tenure files. This article focuses not only on peer-to-peer feedback but student assessment of librarians and self-reflections.

  • Research Consultation Effectiveness for Freshman and Senior Undergraduate
    • Authors: (Allison Faix; Amanda MacDonald, Brooke Taxakis)

      Purpose - This study compares the effectiveness of library research consultations for freshmen and senior undergraduate students to determine if freshmen or seniors benefit more from these sessions.Design/methodology/approach - This study looks at the results of a survey conducted with students enrolled in a senior level capstone research course and in a freshman level composition course who were required to attend library research consultations.Findings - The study finds that freshman students can be overwhelmed by the amount of resources a research consultation may help them locate, and research consultations for freshmen should be conducted with this in mind.Research limitations/implications - Because the size of our study was small, further research with a larger sample size should also be conducted.Practical implications - If librarians experience high demand for required research consultations and have difficulty scheduling sessions, then they may take into consideration that senior students benefit more from consultations than freshmen. Research consultations should also be designed to take student class rank into account.Originality/value - Our study shows that upper-level students benefit more from research consultation than freshman students. Librarians should take this research into consideration when consulting with faculty about the most effective methods of instruction for students.

  • Support Your Staff Employees: They Support the Academy
    • Authors: (Sue Samson; Kimberly Swanson)

      Purpose - This staff survey was designed to serve both as an informational tool identifying library services and resources and as a mechanism to gather input from campus staff to inform outreach services.Design/methodology/approach - Surveys were distributed to all non-faculty and non-administrative support staff. Questions included direct choice and open-ended responses in four categories: demographics, general library use, information needs and student interactions.Findings - The results confirm that knowledge and awareness of the library can empower staff employees and that support staff are eager to learn about and use library resources and services. The results give guidance to liaison librarians to facilitate an effective outreach program to improve the ability of support staff to do their work and to share information with the students and faculty with whom they come into contact.Research limitations/implications - While these survey findings cannot be extrapolated to all academic settings, they build on similar research and authenticate the significance of library outreach to academic support staff.Practical implications - Enormous potential exists in adapting these survey findings to expand information literacy programs across the Academy.Originality/value - Academic support staff are a frequently untapped user group whose information needs are essential to the Academy. This case study highlights the value of staff outreach within the context of extending the Library Instruction Program by enhancing the information literacy skills of personnel who are in frequent contact with students and faculty across the campus.

  • Assessment and change leadership in an academic library department: A case
    • Authors: (Toni M. Carter)

      Purpose - This case study shares an academic library's efforts to introduce course-integrated assessment into its library instruction program. Applying a leadership change model to the process allows for a step-by-step examination of both organizational change and the creation of cultures of assessment. Design/methodology/approach - Over a period of three years, course-integrated assessment was introduced into an academic library's instruction program. Rather than implementing rapid, superficial change, the process focused on transforming librarians' thoughts and feelings about their teaching and student learning. Dr. John P. Kotter's (1996) eight-step process for leading organizational change is applied to explain the methodology. Findings - Dr. John P. Kotter's (1996) leadership change model provides a suitable framework for organizing and implementing organizational change within an academic library. However, the use of his method to create and sustain cultures of assessment proves questionable. This may not be fault of his method, but a combination of a less than perfect application of his process and unrealistic expectations of how cultures of assessment develop and function.Research limitations/implications - The paper focuses on one unit within an academic library rather than an academic library as a whole.Practical implications - Changing organizational culture, creating cultures of assessment, and/or implementing course-integrated assessment exemplify some of the challenging tasks academic libraries face in their mission to prove value. This case study provides a candid discussion of both successes and obstacles encountered in using a change leadership model to address each of these. It may also inspire other possible uses of such a model within academic libraries.Originality/value - According to Meredith Farkas (2013), investigations into the application of leadership change models to build and sustain cultures of assessment within academic libraries do not exist in the literature.

  • Information Behaviour of Humanities PhDs on an Information Literacy Course
    • Authors: (Ronan Madden)

      Purpose - To examine whether an information literacy course/module is an appropriate intervention during the initial months of a humanities PhD, and if there is more that can be learned from the course participants that might provide a better understanding of their information behaviour.Design/methodology/approach - A questionnaire was distributed to new humanities PhD students prior to their attending the course. A second questionnaire was distributed to those who had completed the course in full. Interviews were conducted with six participants to gain a richer understanding of how their information seeking needs had evolved.Findings - Despite the relatively generic nature of the module, and the diversity of humanities research, the course had clear benefits for the participants. In their first year, scoping their topic and finding quality information can pose a challenge. The participants reported that the most appropriate time to attend the course is during the initial months. Some preferred to attend (or repeat) particular units later as workshops. The most valued elements were those that helped them bridge initial gaps. Face-to-face delivery is preferred. There is some potential for further one-to-one contact with librarians and additional follow-up workshops. Practical implications - This study can inform how librarians can better support PhD researchers in the humanities.Originality/value - The study is based around an established and accredited humanities PhD course that has already been adapted in various ways in terms of content and timing of delivery. Drawing on Kuhlthau’s (1991) ‘Information Search Process’, the study seeks a deeper understanding of a specific humanities group during the initial months of their PhD research.

  • Academic Business Librarians' Assistance to Community Entrepreneurs
    • Authors: (Louise Mort Feldmann)

      Purpose - The purpose of this study was to examine on a national scale how academic business librarians are working with community organizations and other libraries to assist local entrepreneurs with their information needs.Design/methodology/approach - A multi method approach was used to gather information. In spring 2012, the author conducted a survey and follow-up interviews with academic business librarians. Additionally, business consultants who have worked with librarians were interviewed.Findings - The survey had 53 respondents. Of those, 40% indicated that they collaborate to assist entrepreneurs. Five interviewees confirmed the findings of the survey and discussed their collaborative arrangements. The consultants discussed best practices in working with entrepreneurs.Research limitations/implications - This research studied academic business librarians and reached those who monitor the buslib-l and brass-l listservs. Not all librarians have the time or take the time to respond to a survey. Additionally, this research only explored collaborations to assist local entrepreneurs and did not specifically focus on campus entrepreneurs and outreach to business schools.Practical implications - This study provides information on academic business librarians' efforts to assist community entrepreneurs. It also provides some information on lessons learned.Originality/value - A national study of academic business librarians' outreach to entrepreneurs has not been conducted in the past.

  • Citation Searching for Tenure & Promotion: An Overview of Issues and
    • Authors: (Janet Dagenais Brown)

      Purpose - While the primary importance of citation searching continues to be connecting researchers to highly-related literature, additional uses for the data have developed. For example, academic institutions frequently recommend that faculty include a citation analysis in their tenure and promotion (t & p) dossiers as a way of demonstrating the value of their research. Due to the limited number of tools available for this type of analysis in the past, Librarians were unable to help faculty create an exhaustive accounting of citations to their work. The intent of this paper is to provide examples of the growing number of tools that now exist to assist librarians and faculty in locating citation information for t & p dossiers.Design/methodology/approach - The author conducted an in-depth survey of both free and subscription resources to identify those that offered options for citation searching.Findings - Commercial vendors, organizations and researchers are developing a wide variety of tools that help track the impact of a faculty member’s research.Research limitations/implications - The list of resources surveyed is not comprehensive. The research was focused on those available and most relevant to the author’s institution.Practical implications - Based on the results of this investigation, the author created a web page to help direct faculty and librarians to a large number of resources for citation searching ( - Librarians have prepared numerous web guides to assist faculty in conducting citation searches. Few offer links to as wide a variety of resources as this research presents.
