Recipe for disaster or formula for success? Creating and assessing a large scale collaborative library introduction exercise for honors students
Working with any large group of students in the library is always a challenge. It becomes even more so when the students number 160 plus and the exercise is supposed to introduce them to all parts of the university library in less than two hours! The logistics alone can cause huge headaches. At the University of Louisville (UL), we have attempted this three years in a row and have learned much about what works and what does not. This article describes the history of the project, our goals, how we have assessed the project’s effectiveness, what we have learned, and what we would recommend.
