In order to provide better library instruction here at Case, we are participating in a nationwide program called Project SAILS. The SAILS program provides a questionnaire/survey used to measure how much students understand about doing research at the university level. This questionnaire is a standardized instrument that will allow librarians and administrators at the University to determine if library instruction has an institutional impact on students' information literacy skills. It will also show how our students compare nationally in Information Literacy competencies. The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. Once completed the student's name will be included in a drawing for an iPod Shuffle! Kelvin Smith Library will do a random drawing for the iPod on the first day of finals (4/28/2005) and will notify the winner by email.
For questions contact William Claspy, Information Literacy librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at 368-3595. If you are a current student and attended an instructional session given by a Kelvin Smith librarian in the past academic year please take the SAILS Survey .
