Students, Librarians, and Subject Guides: Improving a Poor Rate of Return
Reeb, Brenda; Gibbons, Susan
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v4 n1 p123-130 Jan 2004

We suggest that library resources organized or delivered at a course level are more in line with how undergraduate students approach library research. (Contains 26 notes.)
