CLICK ME TO GO THE ARTICLE! Several Brookens Library Staff Members Participated In This Study
Check out this great article which talks about a research project that Brookens Library participated in!
Several Brookens Librarians participated in this study from 2008-2010. Among other things, our findings led us to institute the library workshop series that we market directly to students. If you do not have time in your course to invite a librarian in to the classroom to offer information literary instruction, we urge you to think about offering extra credit for students who attend one of these workshops. Library instruction really does make a difference!
Here is an exerpt from the article:
“The ERIAL (Ethnographic Research in Illinois Academic Libraries) project — a series of studies conducted at Illinois Wesleyan, DePaul University, and Northeastern Illinois University, and the University of Illinois’s Chicago and Springfield campuses — was a meta-exercise for the librarians in practicing the sort of deep research they champion. Instead of relying on surveys, the libraries enlisted two anthropologists, along with their own staff members, to collect data using open-ended interviews and direct observation, among other methods.”

We would like to welcome you to the Fall 2011 semester and introduce you to the new electronic forms we are utilizing for Reserve Requests to support your course work.
The forms are accessible 24/7 for your convenience, and have been upgraded to include these options:
- Access for both Apple and PC users
- The ability to email a copy of each page to yourself for future reference
- Links to subsequent request forms for additional item entry via the electronic thank you/confirmation page
- More character spaces in data boxes to accommodate longer titles and necessary information
Form A is now called Course Information. One course information sheet is required per course each semester to place materials on reserve. Form B is now called Request List. You may submit multiple request lists during the semester. You do not have to submit additional Course Information sheets with subsequent requests.
Please familiarize yourself with the new forms: http://library.uis.edu/faculty/reserves.html
If you are new to UIS, please find more information about the reserves process on the “Faculty Resources” page located on the library website. Feel free to contact Gloria Newton Davlantis email@example.com or Mary O’Brien firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about, or need assistance with, the new forms. We look forward to assisting you and hope you have a rewarding semester.
