Under the Microscope: Looking at Libraries and Online Orientations
Cannady, Rachel E.
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v9 n4 p289-303 2015
Orientations ease students' transition into institutions of higher learning. Most published literature focuses on orientations that occur on the physical campus, but online orientations are equally, if not more, important in engaging a geographically diverse student body. Via online orientations, academic libraries have an excellent opportunity to participate actively in retention plans by helping students feel more comfortable within their institutions' programs. This article presents the survey results of what is happening in online orientations and libraries across the United States.
