    • Introduction to the Library First Year Seminar Judi Moreno Public Services Librarian, CMCC jmoreno@cmcc.edu
    • Today we will • Become comfortable with the staff of the library • Get an orientation to some of the resources you’re expected to use in college • Give yourself a tour of our library and compete “homework” before you leave
    • Your perceptions of the Library A 2010 report by a large U.S. research organization asked the following question to people of all ages: “Whats the first thing you think of when you hear the word library?”
    • 69% of the respondents said books Many others mentioned peace and quiet and shushing librarians**De Rosa, C., Cantrell, J., Carlson, M., Gellagher, P., Hawk, J., & C. Sturtz. (2011) Perceptions of Libraries, 2010: Context and Community. Retrieved from: http://www.oclc.org/reports/2010perceptions/2010perceptions_all.pdf
    • What do you think of when you hear theword “Librarian”? Meet Nancy Pearl iconic librarian at Seattle Public Library author of Book Lust
    • But what arelibrarians Judi Moreno Public Services Librarianreally like?

    • Your search habits We know you start your search for information at Google or Yahoo. Can you guess what percent of students begin their research at the library’s web site?
    • Your search habits One report indicates less than 1% of information consumers started their research at the library’s web site (De Rosa, 2011) Another survey said that out of 89 people polled, not one individual started their research at the library’s web site (Truth be told, 2010 )
    • Your search habits Fewer Americans are asking for assistance with research at the library. Guess how many people asked for help from their librarian. (Either public or academic library)
    • Your search habits Today only 28% of users ask for help compared to 39% in 2005, a decrease of 28% (DeRosa)
    • The internet. Its like a library, but all the booksare in a huge pile in the middle of the floor.
    • What percentage of Americans in 2010 used Wikipedia? What percentage of college students used Wikipedia as “their first go-to place” for information?1.

    • 73% of Americans in 2010 used Wikipedia 75% of college students used Wikipedia as“their first go-to place” for information1. Retrieved from: http://www.oclc.org/reports/2010perceptions/2010perceptions_all.pdf2. Retrieved from: http://projectinfolit.org/pdfs/PIL_ProgressReport_2_2009.pdf
    • One study shows students admit to feeling guilty,embarrassed, and even ‘naughty’ when using Wikipedia
    • So, what are the alternatives? Form a new habit! Ask for help!instead of these try these
