Project Success Students in the Library

Posted by isulib on August 18, 2016

On Wednesday August 17, Reference/Instruction Librarians Marsha Miller and Karen Evans provided the library component of Project Success. Reference/Instruction has been involved in this special early fall semester week-long initiative since its beginnings in 2009.

This year, between 2:00 and 3:15 the student cohorts (50 students total, cohorts A Different World and First Sycamores) rotated between 3 Academic Resources presentations (Your Academic Life):

  • Library (in Library Events),
  • Center for Student Success (in 028) and
  • the Math & Writing Center (in the Center).

Coordinated by Stephanie Pearcy, Director of First Year Student Outreach and Success in the University College, students attend a section of Univ 101 and meet with various campus entities, culminating in a closing banquet on Thursday August 18. This year’s goals were more familiarity with campus people rather than lots of subject matter. Other presentations that week are under these themes: Advising/Social Justice; Student Life; Looking at Your Future; Helping Hand. Project Success students will also help with the regular student move-in on Saturday and Sunday.

Karen and Marsha presented 20-25 minute lively snippets about the library. Some of the information shared is shown below.

PS-1

Always start with a word cloud!

PS-2

                                First year students need to know how many different components                                          make up a university library

PS-3

                                                 First year students may use the building more than the                                                                actual resources during their first semester.

PS-4

It’s hard to spot the books when you first enter the library, but they are there!

PS-5

We have many ways for students to seek out help. If in the building, first stop is here.

PS-6

We get a wide variety of questions thru chat. Linked from Blackboard sites too!

PS-7

The newer way to contact librarians when a consulting appointment is needed.

PS-8
