Be Our Guest: Engaging Graduate Students through Specialized Outreach Events
MetadataShow full item record
In an effort to reach out to graduate students at a large research university, the Performance Studies Librarian and the Graduate Studies Librarian at Texas A&M University Libraries partnered to develop the pilot study, Dinner with Your Librarian program, wherein those librarians took a number of graduate students out to dinner. The primary goals of this program were to establish a rapport with the students and to assess their current knowledge of resources in the library. Additionally, the librarians wanted to forge a connection with the graduate advisors in order to encourage future collaborations between the graduate students and their liaison librarians.
