Better late than never - McGill

What’s a librarian to do when their annual in-class visit gets postponed due to a packed syllabus? Every October, freshmen at McGill University’s Macdonald Campus are given an overview on how to effectively use library resources and services. Last fall, this usually carefully-timed orientation session was pushed to later in the term -after some students had already attended another library workshop, and well after their first library visit. Find out how the use of flexibly-structured PowerPoint slides and an interactive clicker polling strategy uncovered library misconceptions, empowered students to determine session content, and addressed knowledge gaps.
