Great expectations: the professor, the scholar and the library - for Art Plenary (2010)

  1. 1. Great Expectations the professor, the scholar & the library Mark Smith Director of Scholes Library
  2. 2. You are freshmen.. you are “digital natives”.. Your professors & the library are working to understand what you expect & the way you work.
  3. 3. I believe that Professors and Students sometimes have different expectations of the library.. we try to meet them all.. but sometimes they conflict.. i thought id talk about that.. and see if the library can help.
  4. 4. Challenge for Library: align different preferences/expectations When it Comes to Research - Students and Faculty may: • see different values in the research process • trust/understand quality of resources differently (ie. paper vs digital) • value “authority” & “attribution” differently (citation hassles) • different comfort & preferences with technology • value traditional library organization & service differently • have different notions of what is "scholarship” • different values on the library as a "place" • may learn differently (ie. multi-modal) • adopt/expect change at different rates • work in different ways/speeds • communicate differently on paper
  5. 5. Interview with a Scholar
