Proposal Title

Assessing Needs of Graduate Students in Professional Programs

Presenter Status

Academic Librarian

Description

We propose a roundtable discussion in which discussion leaders will facilitate conversations on conducting a needs assessment on:

  • The discipline-specific information literacy and writing needs of graduate students
  • How strategic campus partnerships can contribute to graduate student success
  • Library services that contribute to research literacies (data management, scholarly publishing support, research metrics, more)

In this discussion, we will discuss our own services and practices at the University of Tennessee and introduce our approach to a needs assessment for graduate students in professional programs to be launched in the coming year. This conversation will generate ideas and promote the sharing of strategies among institutions. We are looking at the range of needs graduate students in professional programs have in order to be successful researchers, and writers, and practitioners.

This particular roundtable can ask participants to share:

  • Perceived needs for these students
  • Current practices
  • Challenges in supporting graduate students
  • New ideas
