The Library empowers students by giving them the tools they need to succeed through library services and resources, library employment, and education. University Library partners in the educational mission of IUPUI to develop and support information-literate learners who can discover, access, and use information effectively for academic success, research, and lifelong learning.
Criteria: X% (establishing a baseline) of students responding to the post-research consultation survey state that the interaction was helpful.
Evidence: Post-research consultation survey in LibCal.
Responsible Unit/Area: Educational Services
Assessment Year 2020-21
FY 2021 Results: July 1, 2020-June 30, 2021 n=28 students completed the post-research consultation evaluation. Of those, 89% strongly agreed and 11% agreed that "overall, I feel the session was helpful for my needs."
Discussion: 89% strongly agree is a very strong result. However, for that period there were n=748 research consultations reported. This means we only received feedback on 4% of research consultations. The post-research consultation survey is deployed automatically for appointments booked through LibCal, but not for other research consultation mediums (e.g., email) or methods of booking (e.g., directly via email). Suggest exploring other ways to deploy the survey to increase response rate.
Key Message: Students report that research consultations help them with their research needs and to be successful with assignments.
