SURVEY RESULTS: Research Strategies, First Year Experience Programs, and More

Student and Faculty Perspectives on Research: 
Over 1,100 Students and hundreds of faculty members answered our questions about research and information literacy. Where do faculty and students agree when it comes to research strategies, and where do their perspectives diverge? Come by to discuss the results and grab an infographic of the findings!  

First Year Experience: 
Credo, working with Library Journal, conducted a survey of 500+ librarians from both 2-year and 4-year colleges across the country to measure the need for, and the extent of, information literacy instruction, and its impact on the first year experience. Librarians estimated that less than 1 in 3 first-year students were prepared to conduct college level research. Come see the full results to learn what’s working in First Year Experience programs today!

Make a first-year impression with Credo

Libraries are integral to a student’ first year experience, however their involvement in FYE programs is often limited to “one-shots” or opt-in instructional sessions that vary by department or professor. Credo helps librarians maximize their impact by providing tools designed to

  1. increase research and information literacy skills,
  2. raise awareness of institutional resources
  3. facilitate collaboration between faculty and librarians
  4. provide consistent assessments of student progress
