Did It Help?: The Effects of Research Consultations on the Quality of Sources Used in an Undergraduate Class

Description

Do individual research consultations with a librarian affect the quality of sources undergraduates cite in research papers? This presentation will examine the results of a study conducted to assess that very question. The study compared the quality of citations used by two sections of an upper-level education class. The same instructor taught both sections during two different semesters with the same assignment criteria. Students in one section participated in research consultations with a librarian. Members of the other class did not meet with a librarian. This research provided data for librarians to show their value to both teaching faculty and administrators.
