The First Non-Traditional Doctor of Pharmacy Graduates: Their Perceptions of Library Services
Kupferberg, Natalie; Skunza, Barbara
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v2 n1 p27-39 2005
In June 2004, fourteen students graduated from the first completely online degree program at The Ohio State University--the Non-Traditional PharmD (Doctor of Pharmacy) program. The program was implemented as a response to the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education requiring this degree for entry into pharmacy practice. This article reports on the development of the program, and it includes information gleaned from interviews with six of the graduates. Topics included the services that graduates used most, how they applied their new information seeking skills, the difficulties they had in using the library, and their suggestions for improvement. Importantly, the students were comfortable using the digital resources and felt they could not have completed the degree without online access to library resources. (Contains 17 notes.)
