Vieyra, Michelle L.; Weaver, Kari D. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
Students often come to college with a limited understanding of how to ethically incorporate and cite source materials in their writing, and this is commonly cited as the leading reason for plagiarism. Studies have shown that students in STEM are more apt to plagiarize as compared to students in the humanities or social sciences, so they are an…

Chen, Xiaoju; Dommermuth, Emily; Benner, Jessica G.; Kuglitsch, Rebecca; Lewis, Abbey B.; Marsteller, Matthew R.; Mika, Katherine; Young, Sarah – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2022
Research data management is essential for high-quality reproducible research, yet relatively little is known about how research data management is practiced by graduate students in Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). Prior research suggests that faculty in CEE delegate research data management to graduate students, prompting this…

Xie, Shiyi; Savory, Eric – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2022
Prior research on information literacy instruction in engineering graduate programs rarely considers course instructor perspectives, and instead only uses student feedback to evaluate the efficacy of information literacy instruction. This study documents the authors' efforts to evolve the library curriculum to motivate student learning and meet…

Kenyon, Jeremy; Attebury, Ramirose Ilene; Doney, Jylisa; Seiferle-Valencia, Marco; Martinez, Jessica; Godfrey, Bruce – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2020
Investigations on the help-seeking behavior of academic library patrons have to date primarily focused on the undergraduate experience, most often in the context of reference interactions. This study seeks to explore the help-seeking behaviors of a different audience - faculty in the natural and physical sciences at an R2 land-grant university.…

Lantz, Catherine; Dempsey, Paula R. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2019
Results from focus groups with 23 second- and third-year biology students revealed gradual gains in information literacy (IL) abilities and dispositions needed for them to join the community of scientific practice as laid out in the ACRL "Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education." Students were consumers of information and…

Barkley, Meg – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2018
Online tutorials are a way many librarians connect with students. The main benefit is the ability to reach more students than traditional face-to-face instruction sessions. In 2016, the Life & Health Sciences Librarian received instruction session requests for a freshman biology lab to teach students how to search for articles and use proper…

Thielen, Joanna; Samuel, Sara M.; Carlson, Jake; Moldwin, Mark – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2017
Engineering researchers face increasing pressure to manage, share, and preserve their data, but these subjects are not typically a part of the curricula of engineering graduate programs. To address this situation, librarians at the University of Michigan, in partnership with the Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering Department, developed a…
