Swallow your medicine … Chris Powis University of Northampton BBSLG, June 2007 (chris.powis@northampton.ac.uk)

The changing student body • Time poor • ‘intellectually lazy’ or just strategic learners? • Digitally savvy? • Value for money - customers now • Perception of libraries  Anti-intermediary, anti-expert

‘Shouting into the wind’ • Power of the reading list • Major influences on student choice are academics and friends - not us • Importance layout/length in choice • Most have good search skills - evaluation is what they need • No use of traditional ‘library’ tools like abstracts • But - there is hope …

Expectations • Almost certainly low? • Passive • Boring • Spoon fed

Start with the learner • Audit their needs and expectations  Ask them  Discuss with stakeholders • Academics • Techies (IT and/or media)  Triangulate

Planning - learning styles • Be aware of your own style • Be inclusive (gender, culture, add. Needs) • Variation is the key

Once you’ve got them … • Conversation • Innovation • Variety • Active • Challenging

Once you’ve got them …. • Provide a rationale • Build on early success • Give feedback/assess • Use the group • Manage crises

Once you’ve got them … Relevant and interesting • To the subject but also the student • “librarians love to search everybody else likes to find” (Eric Lease Morgan, Notre Dame Univ.)  Performance • Whether you like it or not • Spontaneity or planned • Technology • Double acts
