Library implications:Again, parents are very involvedAppreciation for first generation college students – felt very isolated, very alone, very different, kept under the radar

Introduction: The aim of the Study Group Sub team was to find out what students did in study groups and how we can apply what we learn so that the library can support the connection between study groups and library resources, facilities, and people.For our purposes, study groups consisted of groups of two or more students who were enrolled in and working on the same course. Study group work always involved discussion of course material. Students work in study groups primarily to collaborate on a class assignment (sometimes these study groups are voluntary and sometimes they are required by the professor), to study for a test or as part of a workshop (assigned and required) group. We conducted seven interviews of study groups during spring and fall semesters 2010 both in Carlson and Gleason Library.
