|Bibliographic Instruction Sessions and Tours
|"I really appreciated the fact that
the librarian who taught our instruction session acknowledged where we
were and was not redundant. She covered the specific resources that we
needed, so I felt she was very sensitive to her audience. I've been to
other sessions offered by course instructors that were very brief, and
then they left. I felt lost. But the librarians are very approachable
after the session, and this really makes me feel that they will help me
to the end."--Lori Williamsen, Masters degree student in Physical

||Library faculty offered 140 bibliographic instruction
sessions specifically targeted to the content of particular courses. In
most cases, the subject bibliographer for an academic area offered these
sessions. Among the 132 tours given by library faculty and staff, some
were for groups of high school students or dual credit students who planned
to do research during their visit to the library. Library faculty also
provided general instruction sessions for these groups. Computer classroom
space in either Computer Commons or the hands-on Bibliographic Instruction
Room 2439 was made available.
|For our younger students there were special
enhancements to library tours in the form of story times, puppet entertainment,
and online educational games.
