Bibliographic Instruction SIG

Speaker Scott Collard

Social Sciences Collection Coordinator and Librarian for Education and Linguistics
NYU, Bobst Library

Scott Collard, Social Sciences Collections Coordinator and Librarian for Education and Linguistics at New York University’s Bobst Library, will give a presentation about graduate student services at NYU: “Over the past several years, university libraries have been discussing the need for the provision of specialized services, spaces, and instructional programming for graduate students.  When considering graduate students' library needs, there has been a concentration on designing graduate student spaces, creating technology and service infrastructure to support graduate student needs, and deploying student-centered instructional programming.  In the past six years, a number of studies have reported data on graduate student library use to recommend how libraries can better serve these users. At NYU, we've been working over the past four years to increase our capacity to deliver services and spaces to support highly diverse, evolving, and growing populations of graduate students. This presentation will present an overview of some of the approaches we have taken, the precepts that underlie our approach, and a discussion of some of the results we are seeing from these interventions.”
This is a joint meeting of the Metro Bibliographic Instruction Special Interest Group and the ACRL-NY Graduate Studies Discussion Group.
