Abstract

For three years, the librarians at University of Georgia’s Science Library have planned and executed a successful program designed for graduate students in the scientific disciplines, our Spring Into Research series. The programming efforts have afforded the librarians an opportunity to draw on our subject-specific strengths while reaching out to campus partners relevant to graduate students’ interests. Each year, we have reflected and adapted programming to better fit the needs and desires of our graduate student population. Assessment of these efforts has helped guide the process. Learn what has and hasn’t worked, including best practices for advertising the event, most popular sessions, appropriate campus partners, and assessment of the programs. Ideas for future presentations will also be shared with the audience.
