Student Engagement and Library Classes at Limerick

I found a useful article in what is essentially our LMS (library management system) trade magazine – Panlibus, issue 40, summer 2016.

‘Better engagement = Better results’, by Michael Smalle, Librarian: First Year Student Engagement and Success.

It’s about the University of Limerick’s hiring of three new professionals to assist with transitions of students from school to university, making sure they know how to get the most out of the library and how to hone their study skills.  The author, Michael Smalle, has been a teacher as well as a librarian for a number of years, so is well-equipped for both aspects of his role.

Clearly, we can’t have a librarian just devoted to first years, in a small conservatoire library, but the ideas are still relevant.  The article can be read online here.
