Goal Learning



Sharon WeinerIn a university, information literacy focuses on students learning how to find and use information for the papers, presentation, and projects that they create. This should begin in the first year of college and build progressively through their courses of study. To be effective in laying this foundation with new college students, we must understand what they learned about information literacy before they came to college — in their high schools.

Let’s look at some of the evidence. Dr. Alison Head reported in her recent national study of freshmen that many of these students found college libraries to be much larger and more complex than the libraries in their high schools. They found that searching for scholarly literature was “daunting." These first-years realized that the strategies they used to find and use information in high school were inadequate for what professors expected of them in college. Dr. Head stated that “it was not that they were not good at research — they were entirely new to library research....they had written so few high school research papers they had a very limited understanding of what the research process entails and how libraries could best help them." This surprising finding from her study leads us to question, how can this be?

Although there are information literacy-related standards for K-12 students, many students don’t seem to enter college with those abilities. What is happening in K-12 classrooms and libraries? The 2014 State of America’s Libraries reported related that school libraries “are at a critical point." There is a serious decline in the number of school libraries and of school librarians, despite the studies that show that they have an impact on student success. This implies that those of us who work with new college students can’t make assumptions about what first-year students know about library research when they come to college, despite existing standards. Our new students probably have no experience with many of the skills and concepts about the world of information that we take for granted. We shouldn’t even assume that they read books, which is in the K-12 standards and which many of us enjoy and value. Sadly, 43% of Purdue’s 2012 freshmen spent less than an hour during their last year in high school reading for pleasure in a typical week.

The transition from high school to college is a critical period for students. Having a strong grounding in academic fundamentals influences the success of students in persisting through college and in completing a degree. Some of those fundamentals are the ability to effectively find and use information for academic work. If college students had the benefits of adequately-supported school libraries and school librarians, they would have less difficulty in making the transition to college-level research. Since they don’t, those of us who work with information literacy in higher education need to consider how to address the need for basic competencies, as well as more advanced disciplinary aspects of information literacy.

Collaborations between K-12 teachers and teacher-librarians to teach information competencies should occur to ensure adequate preparation for students after they graduate from high school.

In the next few weeks a new group, the Fulfillment Services Working Group, will form. The Fulfillment Services Working Group, or FSWG, is in direct response to staff requests to re-form the past circulation-related groups, with a new name and broader focus to reflect our implementation of Alma.

FSWG will certainly tackle circulation-related issues. FSWG’s purpose is to provide superior customer service by establishing consistency and best practices, identifying/resolving common issues/problems, recommending policy, and troubleshooting with internal libraries and departments. FSWG will meet monthly, with the possibility of broader forum meetings held as needed.

Monica Kirkwood will chair FSWG for its inaugural year, and then the chair position will rotate among the Libraries Operations Managers. FSWG membership will include the chair, the Libraries Operations Manager for Resource Sharing (Amy Winks), the Billing and Circulation Clerk (Dacia Wiesler), representation from each division to be determined by the Operations Manager for that division, and a representative from Resources Services (RS), to be determined by the RS supervisors. The OM for Access Services and the Billing and Circulation Clerk will be permanent members of the FSWG.

He has worked in the Information Technology and Resource Services, Digital Programs for six semesters. Patty Glasson, his supervisor said, “Bradley was originally hired and trained by Carl Snow before I became manager of the Digital Programs unit, so I can’t take a lot of credit for his success, but we have appreciated Bradley’s continuing contributions to a variety of successful digitization projects over the years. His knowledge of our scanning equipment and his flexibility allow us to quickly switch him from one project to another as our needs and resources change, which is just one reason we’re happy to have him as part of the unit.”

“I would like to thank the Purdue Libraries for the opportunities to work and learn and for the honor of the PULSE Award. This scholarship will help immensely in my dream of becoming a veterinarian. I have learned so much from working with our team and will continue to enjoy the friendships that I have created with both peers and supervisors,” said Bradley.

Jennifer SicklesJennifer Sickles is a junior majoring in Animal Science from Highland, Indiana. She has worked in the Veterinary Medical Library for two and a half years. Her supervisor, Tonya Wichterman said, “Jennifer has been an outstanding student assistant. She is extremely dependable and one of the first to volunteer for special projects which we have had a lot of this past year. When other students ask for time off Jennifer is frequently there to volunteer to pick up the extra shift. Her attitude is always helpful and courteous to patrons and coworkers as well as the library staff. Jennifer is an important asset to the VETM Library.”

"I am extremely honored that I was chosen as a recipient of the PULSE scholarship. I have loved working in Purdue Libraries for the past three years and I feel as if I've truly grown from my experiences at VETM. Working in VETM has given me a chance to develop my customer service and teamwork skills, as I've been blessed with wonderful coworkers who never hesitate to help,” said Jennifer.

Michael WestMichael West is a P4 graduate student in the College of Pharmacy and has worked for the Libraries since 2007. His plans following graduation on May 17 are to continuing working for Walmart in the Indianapolis area as a pharmacy graduate intern and prepare for his licensing examinations this summer to become a pharmacist. Once licensed he will continue adding to his fourteen years at Walmart as a pharmacist and hopefully serve as a reserve officer in the military. His supervisor, Cheryl Oliver said, “Michael has been an outstanding student employee who has helped out in so many ways. He was persistent in getting through Pharmacy school and I am so very proud of him for graduating this year but I will truly miss this young man.”

“Thanking the people who helped me achieve this honor is most important to me. Cheryl Oliver is not only a great advisor and manager, but 'good people.' This last part was told to me by a departing supervisor prior to my acceptance as a pharmacy library assistant. Those words couldn't be truer. She has taught me a lot about being 'good people' and I am thankful her previous student, Sheryl Dietrich, now a pharmacist, for telling me to apply for this job. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you Miss Oliver and Miss Dietrich for all of your hard work and professionalism, you will always have a special place in my heart, and I hope my award exemplifies the people you are and who you have taught me to be,” said Michael.
