Instruction and Outreach for Transfer Students: A Colorado Case Study
Roberts, Lindsay; Welsh, Megan E.; Dudek, Brittany
College & Research Libraries, v80 n1 p94-122 Jan 2019
Studies of transfer student success abound in higher education, yet few studies examine the role that academic libraries play in students' transitions. This study explores the academic library services offered to transfer students in Colorado through a survey of librarians. What are barriers to offering these services? How do library professionals perceive instruction and outreach to transfer students? Results show differences between attitudes and practice, even within the same institution, and suggest opportunities for future collaboration among two-year and four-year academic libraries in Colorado. The article discusses these findings in the context of findings from New York and Ohio studies, suggesting that academic libraries need greater awareness of, and services for, transfer students.
