Librarian Challenge: Reaching College Freshmen. Spotlight Feature
Dopke-Wilson, MariRae
Educators' Spotlight Digest, v2 n2 Spr-Sum 2007
Getting acclimated to campus life is overwhelming to most freshmen, making library orientation low on their priority list. The author teams up with two college librarians in action. Michael Pasqualoni, Instructional Services Librarian at Syracuse University Library, taught IST 200 last Fall. He relied on an arsenal of media tools to keep students interested and responsive. Just a few blocks away at the adjacent State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) campus, Assistant Librarian Linda Galloway meets a similar challenge. In addition to teaching an Information Literacy course, she instructs a one-class information session for freshmen, aptly named, "25 Tips in 50 Minutes." In this article, the author describes what Pasqualoni and Galloway do to motivate those incoming freshmen.
