a new year
I’ve made many changes over the last few months including moving 2000 miles across the country for my new job. With September around the corner, I now am approaching the school year from the other side. No longer a student, I will be part of the staff that helps ensure student success.
Beginning this week, I will be conducting new student orientation sessions as well as formal information literacy classes. I’m most excited about putting into practice all of the studying I did in grad school on these topics. Will I be able to effectively engage today’s student and help set them on the right research path? With so many options when it comes to information sources, it really isn’t surprising that creating searches in databases might seem overwhelming and unneccessarily complex compared to Google.
My library has some exciting initiatives to be implemented this fall and I’m eager to be a part of a system that embraces new technology and new means of reaching out to students.
