Buried in Library Instruction?

It seems like most community & junior college librarians are experiencing the rush of research instruction sessions right now–that thrilling time when we get to interact with classrooms full of students while trying to also support their needs outside of the session. It may be a few weeks until we know what all has landed in our email inbox, but we know that we’ll eventually get to it.

Although “time” seems like a foreign concept right now, it’s actually a great time to consider the supplemental materials we have for our students once they walk out of the instruction session.

  1. PRIMO is a great resource! I always forget to look, although the Instruction Section does put it out on listservs. I had a busy week for instruction and weeding, and I have a bit of a calm before the next instruction storm. I will take a look! Thanks!
