What Classroom Faculty at Ball State University Say about Library Instruction Services … Dr. Martha J. Payne

Dr. Martha J. Payne shares her perspective about the value and importance of the library instruction sessions at the Ball State University Libraries.

Library Instruction for English 103 and 104 is valuable because the Reference librarians are more familiar with the expanding databases than the classroom instructor is. In addition, the librarians help students determine search terms to help them find appropriate sources for their research topics. Last semester, librarians in Periodicals helped my students use the microfilm for past newspaper articles and the microfilm readers. Every time I bring my students for instruction, I, too, learn something new.

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