Temple University librarians conducted 10 structured interviews with faculty in order to learn more about how and why they choose and share content with their students. The interviews revealed how the faculty experience of discovery is rooted in their self-identity as readers and experts, and is something they aim to model for their students. The results from these interviews may suggest ways for libraries and publishers to influence what content faculty select and integrate into their teaching.

Presenters from Temple University Libraries:

  • Jenifer Baldwin, Head of Reference and Instructional Services
  • Richard Lezenby, Librarian for Psychology and Political Science
  • Anne Harlow, Librarian for Music, Dance, and Theater
