Hi! So nice to meet you. So, you’d like help finding a journal article? Oh, that’s nice. Let me show you. Hey, do you know about Boolean? It’s so great, you should definitely come to our introductory library classes.”

Has this ever been you? Have you ever forcibly restrained or illegally detained a student while you told them about their many library choices? Watched a student’s eyes fill with fear? You may be an Overly Attached Librarian. This showcase presentation will look at student engagement, adult learning principles, and we’ll do it all in five minutes. Because we’re that good.*
