This project took a mixed methods approach to assessing the usage of research and instructional services at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Through the collection of surveys and the administration of focus groups, we identified obstacles and impediments to student engagement. Using this information, we created recommendations aimed at helping Gordon Library’s Research and Instructional team improve its outreach to students and faculty and at making information literacy a more central learning objective across campus. The areas of improvement include Summon, course integration, advertising, and other workshops.
