New Student Orientation Sessions Provide Unique Introduction to the Libraries

New Student Orientation consists of a packed two-day schedule for incoming freshmen to learn more about becoming Drexel students. The Libraries participate annually in orientation sessions, providing information about library services, resources and staff.

For summer 2012 sessions, a memorable and interactive presentation aims to leave students with a positive impression of the Libraries and library staff. Prepared by Librarian for Undergraduate Learning Nancy Bellafante, the presentation is designed with the understanding that students will likely not retain all of the information they hear. So, her presentation focuses on getting students to understand that the Libraries provides many important services and resources that will help them to succeed.

The Libraries orientation session is movie-themed, with both images and music clips, and students can win prizes for participating. Students are also asked to participate by responding to polls using their cell phones. The questions center around ways that students interact with information -- for example, asking if they prefer print or electronic formats. Poll responses are tracked and shown to the audience in real-time, and students are informed that the Libraries has a variety of different resources, spaces and instructional tools to assist all students, in accordance with their preferences and areas of interest.

The Libraries orientation session is fun for both students and the library presenters, and offers a nice opportunity for staff to start building relationships with the incoming class.
