Aligning Library Instruction with the Needs of Basic Science Graduate Students Donna O’Malley, MLS and Frances Delwiche, MLIS Dana Medical Library, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT Conclusions A major revision of the planning, delivery, and assessment of library instruction for basic sciences graduate students increased the total number of attendees, as well as the number of graduate students attending. Consultation with faculty on content and scheduling was helpful in identifying graduate students’ needs. Offering each session on two consecutive days allowed the series to reach more students. Future plans include computer screen recording of sessions rather than videotaping, and revision of the content of several of the sessions. Although the new model needs additional refinements, it is clear that it was more successful at reaching the target audience than the previous model. Objective To replace the library’s current model for basic sciences graduate student information literacy instruction, consisting of brown-bag workshops, private tutorials, and brief orientations, with an entirely new model designed specifically to address the needs of this patron population. Results Findings from previous studyApplicability to new model Instruction that is focused on specific resources, especially licensed library resources, and proceeds in a strictly linear fashion is generally not effective. The literature review process must be viewed as a non-linear, dynamic process that involves the use of multiple resources, both library and non-library. The library moved from its traditional communication methods to more innovative marketing strategies that took advantage of the inherent collegiality of the basic science researchers and graduate students. Despite possessing advanced literature searching skills, basic science researchers nevertheless have knowledge gaps in key areas that can be effectively addressed through appropriate instruction.

Sessions scheduled on multiple days to accommodate irregular schedules. Sessions that increased students’ knowledge also increased their skills, but some sessions were more successful than others. Though librarians were concerned the ample hands-on practice time would not leave enough time to cover pertinent material, most attendees indicated they were satisfied with the format. Basic science researchers are highly collegial, with graduate students learning much of their searching skills from their peers and mentors. Assuming a sound foundation in information literacy skills, librarians identified knowledge gaps and persistent problems, and tailored instruction to address those areas. The resulting faster pace of instruction also proved to be suitable for this group. In spite of a condensed description of MeSH, eight out of nine students responding to the survey were able to correctly answer the question about mapping to MeSH terms. Survey of attendees after two class sessions Most attendees expressed satisfaction with content of the sessions, although one would have preferred a broad overview of the literature review process, rather than a demonstration of specific search techniques. Survey of attendees at conclusion of series In the new model, librarians at Dana Medical Library addressed three important findings from a 2009 study 1 at the Library: Library workshop attendance in 2010 compared to previous years. The new model was implemented in the fall of 2010, coupled by a vigorous and targeted marketing campaign. As a result, considerably more graduate students attended library instruction sessions in fall of 2010 than in an average of the previous three fall semesters. The new model for library instruction also appealed to new faculty and hospital residents and nurses preparing to launch research projects. ● Almost all attendees came to the sessions with at least one colleague. ● Throughout the poster-creation demo, attendees were able to able to follow along easily, despite the instructor’s rapid manipulation of the software. ● Videotaping did not adequately capture the computer screen projection, though audio quality was satisfactory. Additional observations Team-teaching, pairing up with non-library instructors in their areas of expertise. Activity-centered content focused on real- world activities and real-world issues.
