12th Annual Conference of the Association of College and Research Libraries
Has a faculty member ever approached you and asked you to come to her class to talk to students about library services and research tools, and when you ask, “What are the learning objectives for the session?” the faculty member replied, “Oh, they just need to know everything about library research, library services, how to evaluate information, and how to access materials in the library and online.” How much is reasonable for a subject librarian to impart to students in a single 50-minute one-shot? Join colleagues to discuss strategies for managing faculty expectations of library sessions and approaches for narrowing learning outcomes to specific and reasonable objectives that are met in a single class meeting.
