Title: Graduate Student Information Literacy
Authors: Dominy, Margaret
Bhatt, Jay
Pell, John
Keywords: information literacy;library instruction
Issue Date: 14-Jul-2011
Abstract: Research conducted with first year graduate students in the Biology and Chemistry departments of Drexel University during the spring term, 2010 by Dominy & Denick, indicated that these students were not adept in using their primary databases, especially for extensive literature reviews. We saw a need for developing an instruction program tailored to graduate students. We partnered with the Bridge to the Doctorate program and the Fellowships Office at Drexel University. For this group of about 12 students, we designed a series of instruction sessions for the first year of graduate studies. The Fellowships Office is a support service for graduate students applying for grant funding opportunities. This poster describes the sessions developed this year that will form the basis for a larger scale effort next year.
