What Classroom Faculty at Ball State University Say about Library Instruction Services … Dr. Laura A. Snyder’s Perspective

Dr. Laura A. Snyder, Department of English, shared her perspective about the value and importance of the library instruction sessions at the Ball State University Libraries.

I have been delighted with how Library Instruction Services has tailored sessions to my students’ needs. When I bring classes to Bracken Library to address their various research projects, I know that Instructional Services’ librarians will provide the students with specific, detailed research strategies that help them with the general assignment I’ve given. Furthermore, the librarians also help me to stress how the specific research strategy we are employing is indicative of a pattern for research — from general reference sources in books and databases all the way through specific articles in journals and databases — that is useful across the curriculum.

This is an excerpt from an article, which first appeared in The Library Insider 5(3): 4; March 2007.
