But why should you note them? So you can learn and adapt.

#LILAC15 – peer to peer facilitation – NICE student champions

The students involved have enjoyed their trips to NICE, and have even presented a poster a AMEE conference (see the last page) What is tricky for me, is the fact that talking about NICE Evidence Search is something we should be doing anyway – it is already integral to all/any of the session I do with the students, so it should never be the case that students are taken by surprise by this resource.

What Students Don't Know. CHICAGO -- For a stranger, the main library at the University of Illinois at Chicago can be hard to find.

What Students Don't Know

The directions I got from a pair of clerks at the credit union in the student center have proven unreliable. I now find myself adrift among ash trees and drab geometric buildings. Finally, I call for help. Firouzeh Logan, a reference librarian here, soon appears and guides me where I need to go. Several unmarked pathways and an escalator ride later, I am in a private room on the second floor of the library, surrounded by librarians eager to answer my questions. Most students never make it this far. This is one of the sobering truths these librarians, representing a group of Illinois universities, have learned over the course of a two-year, five-campus ethnographic study examining how students view and use their campus libraries: students rarely ask librarians for help, even when they need it. However, the researchers did not place the onus solely on students. Pragmatism vs. Library Terms That Users Understand.

Mr. Library Dude. It’s that time of year: Final Exams.

Mr. Library Dude

To help de-stress students at my academic library, we usually plan some activities to help students relax and have a little fun too. Yesterday I tweeted a postcard that my library is giving students to send back home to assure mom and dad that they’re studying for final exams. It proved popular! At last count, it was re-tweeted 37 times and favorited 31 times.
