Conversation with a Duke Librarian

In my User Education class today, we were able to talk to Emily Daly, an Instruction and Outreach Librarian for Duke University Libraries. Our class held a great interactive discussion, and I discovered some interesting things that the Duke Libraries are doing. In particular, I thought it was a great idea that the librarians launched an initiative within the department to create shared learning outcomes for their instruction sessions. They started by examining the instruction sessions for the introductory English classes. The librarians got together and identified all the things they all teach in these sessions, and then identified six that they felt were most important. Now, they are trying to do the same for other instruction sessions they hold for other various disciplines. It sounds like such a great program to help all the librarians give a structured, useful session for their students.
