Their First Encounter: How to Encourage At-Risk Students' Return to the Library
Hassig, Susan
Community & Junior College Libraries, v12 n1 p45-55 2003
This article discusses the response of at-risk students to their initial library orientation. By presenting an entertaining yet informative session, students will be quickly put at ease. The goal of this type of orientation is to promote the library's resources and services, address basic queries, and encourage students' return in a non-threatening, entertaining manner. The article includes a review of the literature on the need for library orientation for non-users, a description of a summer success program on campus, the process involved in putting the library component together, the program's design, and a preliminary assessment of the program.
