Staff notes: Research & Instruction Librarians Merry and Vrabel

Anna Merry and Bekky Vrabel, Research & Instruction Librarians at the Cofrin Library, will present at the annual Wisconsin Association of Academic Libraries conference, April 21 and at the Information Literacy Summit on May 5. Their presentation, “Collecting and Analyzing Student Feedback on Information Literacy Instruction,” describes the library’s 3-2-1 instruction assessment project. This assessment collects qualitative feedback after an instruction session by asking students to answer and reflect on the following: three things they learned in the session(s); two questions they still have; and one thing they will do differently when they research going forward. Implemented by the research & outreach services team, this assessment has provided valuable data on library instruction and students’ information literacy needs.
