Library Instruction and Academic Success: A Mixed-Methods Assessment of a Library Instruction Program.
This study examines the connection between student academic success and information literacy instruction. Focus groups with graduating seniors discussed student experiences and preferences regarding library instruction. An analysis of 4,489 academic transcripts of graduating seniors identified differences in grade point average (GPA) between students with different levels of library instruction. Library instruction seems to make the most difference to student success when it is repeated at different levels in the university curriculum, especially when it is offered in upper-level courses.
