D: Trade, technical, and industry publications/websites E: Corporate websites, ads, and whitepapers F: Non-scholarly, non industry specific publications (including general business publications, encyclopedias and websites not belonging to any other defined group) G: Primary sources and Personal communications, blogs, and social networking sites H: Government publications

8 Results: Per Citation

9 Results: Per source

10 Conclusions No statistically significant differences in citation patterns Citation behavior suggests embedded librarian program meets ACRL Standards Methodology can be useful for assessing Face-to-Face vs. online instruction, and is easily implemented by faculty and librarians

11 Limitations and Special Considerations Small Sample Size, only two semesters Unique citation patterns in MIS course (Current trade journals > peer-reviewed sources in business & technology) Narrow Research Question Does NOT explore instruction quality, simply whether students cite similar sources after receiving online vs. face-to- face library instruction

12 Further Study Expand Scope Timespan Additional courses Additional Institutions Expand Variables Currency of sources cited Average Bibliography size

13 Thank You! Sarah Clark, MLIS Access Services and Distance Learning Librarian Rogers State University Claremore, OK Susan Chinburg, Ph.D Assistant Professor School of Business and Technology Rogers State University Claremore, OK
