Libraries Teach Skills for Lifelong Learning to Over 3,000 Undergraduates through English 101 Instructional Sessions

October 31, 2011

By: Jenny James Lee In the past month, Libraries staff conducted around 160 sessions for new Drexel students in English 101 classes, reaching well over 3,000 undergraduates, and introducing each to methods and tools of library research. 'The goal is to introduce new students to the methods and tools of library research and guide them on their path to becoming information literate individuals,' said Larry Milliken, Liaison Librarian for Humanities and Social Sciences. Through these many instructional sessions, students, with direct assistance from a librarian, learn how to search for scholarly information. Students learn in real-time and can ask questions as they arise. The Libraries participated in these instructional sessions for the past several years as a part of the Freshman Writing Program. This year, twenty librarians and library staff participated in the instruction, representing all three Drexel University Libraries and the Legal Research Center. The Libraries' instructional sessions help students to develop skills for lifelong learning and to identify librarians as experts who can help them learn to find reliable information.
