Embedded Academic Librarians Instilling Life-Long Learning Skills: A Proposed Methodology for Assessing Self-Perceived Information-Seeking Behaviors of Undergraduate Students
As librarians, we want to believe that we impact information-seeking behaviors of students and instill a desire to continue learning. While many institutions collect student feedback from students taking library instructional classes, there is not always a clear indicator of the role librarians have in shaping information-seeking behaviors. With the growing number of embedded librarians, there is a growing need to assess how information-seeking behaviors are changing. These teaching opportunities and atypical model for library instruction may potentially have a different impact on student research behavior over time. Therefore, this paper proposes a methodology to begin assessing how undergraduate students perceive their information-seeking behavior development.
