1 thought on “WNY/O ACRL Fall Conference 2013”
At the last place I worked, we raelly promoted the one-on-one consultation and it was very successful. At my current institution, we offer it as a service but it is not promoted. I tell students about it in classes, and a few have taken me up on it. Personally, I find these interactions some of the most rewarding, and the students I have worked with get a lot out of it as well. They almost always contact me for follow-up, and at the very least they say hi whenever I see them in the library. I think it is important to offer this service as an option for those individuals who may be reluctant to speak up in class or approach someone at the reference desk just one more facet of the multitude of services we can offer to meet the needs of our diverse users.
