Making Strategic Decisions: Conducting and Using Research on the Impact of Sequenced Library Instruction
Lundstrom, Kacy; Martin, Pamela; Cochran, Dory
College & Research Libraries, v77 n2 p212-226 Mar 2016
This study explores the relationship between course grades and sequenced library instruction interventions throughout psychology students' curriculum. Researchers conducted this study to inform decisions about sustaining and improving program integrations for first- and second-year composition courses and to improve discipline-level integrations. Researchers began with transcript analysis but soon incorporated student surveys and a faculty focus group to supplement the data and influence future directions. Findings confirmed that students benefit from meaningful collaborations with the library at strategic, sequenced points in their curriculum, including at the discipline level. This research also provided concrete information that brought about change at the classroom and programmatic level.
