Welcoming First Year Students in Style. The College Connection
Kasowitz-Scheer, Abby
Educators' Spotlight Digest, v1 n3 Fall 2006
This "back to school" edition of College Connection features ideas and success stories from academic libraries that have welcomed first-year students in creative ways. Many libraries participate in campus orientation initiatives in order to introduce new students to the library as a welcoming place with helpful staff. These events can set a positive tone for students to begin to develop their information literacy skills at the college level. Through games, activities and special events, academic libraries present themselves as comfortable environments, so that students will return to the library for research help when they need it. In this article, the author shares what some academic libraries are doing to welcome new students.
