Anne Giffey (Library) presented a poster at the American Library Association annual conference, a culmination of research conducted through the Association of College & Research Libraries “Assessment in Action” grant. This program sponsored librarian-led teams to carry out assessment projects examining the impact of the library on student learning/success. Ryan Lynch (Library), Helen Hoyt (Chemistry), Leah Adams-Curtis (Institutional Research and Assessment) and Jeff Douglas (Library) also contributed to this project.
The poster, entitled “The Seats Don’t Lie: Study Preferences of STEM Students”, presented insight into the study preferences of Knox students enrolled in STEM courses, especially in regard to use of the campus libraries. This data will help plan for the renovation of the Science & Mathematics branch library to encourage and sustain student success.
