Brennan E, Ogawa R, Lynch A, Bartel C. (2008, May 20). Nursing Liaisons: Connecting Librarians and Nurses in their Education and Practice Roles. Paper presented at the Medical Library Association Annual Conference, Chicago, IL.
Notes: This graph shows total numbers of patrons in classes over the academic calendar year. Some patrons may have taken more than one class and would therefore be counted for each class received. For example, Master’s of Nursing program students received sequenced instruction throughout the year and therefore would have been counted once for each session received…possibly counted 3 to 5 times (once for orientation, a second time for N220, a third time for N323, and a fourth time for an EndNote session). Note that the majority of our sessions are small to medium group hands-on activities.
