11 Reflections I thought their lack of map skills may have hindered their ability to label properly. I was surprised to see that the most common struggle for students was properly reading the call numbers. Students seemed to struggle with using the first part of the call number as an indicator for where the book could be found. How well the students performed over all - this is not reflected in how students find materials on a day-to-day basis in the library.
