“Few Students Likely to Use Print Books for Research”

Monday, August 5th, 2013 | Posted in Faculty, News, Services, Workshops by Tomaro Taylor | No Comments »

A 2012 report recently published by the Pew Research Center indicates that only 12% of surveyed  middle- and high-school teachers said their students “were ‘very likely’ to use printed books in a typical research assignment.” Of those surveyed, only 16% of teachers said that their students would be “very likely” to seek assistance from research librarians.

Students carry these habits into their college careers and beyond.  If they’re not navigating the stacks, just what are they navigating?  Let’s find out!  Schedule a librarian-led session to help your students learn to search library resources effectively.  C ontact Claudia Dold for more information, or sign up for a session using the online form.

Research projects!  Papers!  Finals! It’s enough to make even the most confident of students shudder.  Get research help when and where you need it most – the FMHI Research Library.  Librarians can help you define your research topic, identify pertinent resources, and cite your sources using APA 6th edition and RefWorks citation management system.

Over the next few weeks, we will be hosting workshops geared towards your research needs.  If the workshops don’t fit your schedule, request a one-on-one session!  We want you to be successful and are constantly looking for ways to serve you better.  Contact Librarian Claudia Dold at cdold@usf.edu for more information.
