  20. 20. What worked.<br />Librarians and technologists gave faculty an overview of some challenges that students face when presented with an assignment.<br />An overview of services was helpful as many faculty members were unaware of some of the resources available.<br />Just getting these three groups in the same room allowed for some relationship building.<br />
  21. 21. What would we do differently?<br />Be more prepared for faculty questions about some of the databases. Perhaps solicit before the workshop some specific questions we might address.<br />Cover less information. Some of the faculty seemed to experience information overload and we ran out of time.<br />
  22. 22. What are some ways you are connecting with the faculty on your campus?<br />
