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…

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…
