As the spring semester began, Undergraduate Learning Librarian Beth Fuchs represented UK Libraries at the K2 Kickoff. The event welcomed new, transfer, and international students to campus. Beth created a presentation using animation video software to introduce students to UK Libraries. The presentation focused on the challenges of academic research and highlighted the role of UK Libraries faculty and staff in student success.
Also at the beginning of the semester, Director of Collections Heath
Martin and Information Literacy Coordinator Debbie Sharp introduced new graduate teaching assistants to the resources and services available to them through UK Libraries.
Heath advised the graduate students to get to know their academic liaisons, the subject specialist librarians who support them in their teaching and research needs. Debbie focused on library support in the classroom, recommending the February 11 Graduate Student Workshop, “What Your Students Think They Know about Research and How You Can Help.” The workshop will highlight best practices in the design of library research assignments.
