Title: Librarian Involvement in Problem based Learning: A Student Perspective
Objective: Library involvement in the correlated medical problem solving (CMPS) courses seems practical, but no formal evaluation has been conducted to determine the value of the librarian’s involvement in the course from the student’s perspective. This study seeks to evaluate first-year dental student’s perspective of having library involvement in their problem-based learning course.
Methods: The liaison librarian to the school of dental medicine has taken an active approach in providing library instruction to first year students. In addition to the traditional orientation session and one-on-one instructions, the librarian has also been involved with the CMPS course, which uses a problem-based learning format. The format of this course is designed to encourage the student’s ability to problem solve as well as sharpen their information retrieval methods. A survey was designed to rate students overall response to the librarian involvement in the problem-based learning course, role of the personal librarian, student’s comfort with finding and using library resources, awareness of resources, handouts provided during the librarian’s visit in problem-based learning, and rating of current outreach efforts. An email will be sent to first year dental students to voluntarily participate in this survey.
Results: Survey results are pending
Conclusions: Conclusion is pending on survey results.
