Seeing the Big Picture: Using Images to Understand Students' Approaches to the Research Process


Images can provide a valuable method of understanding user behavior. This presentation describes a project at the University of Nevada, Reno, where librarians asked students from different majors and levels to draw their processes of executing research assignments. Librarians used this visual data in combination with written responses and oral interviews to arrive at a more thorough understanding of the student research process. The results and implications of this assessment will be discussed. In addition, this presentation will cover ways that different types of images can be used in assessment projects, tips for coding and interpreting images, and other concerns that often arise with the use of visual materials.

About the Presenter:
Ann Medaille Director of Research Services and the Liaison Librarian Program at the University of Nevada, Reno. She holds an M.L.S. from the University of North Texas and an M.A. in theatre from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

About the Carterette Series Webinars

The Carterette Series Webinars was named to honor one of our founding members, Pat Carterette.

In June of 2010, members of the Georgia Library Association and the Georgia Public Library Service launched this educational webinar series. The series highlights trends, innovation, and best practices in libraries. The free sessions are open to interested parties from all geographic (and astral) locations. Topics are chosen to be of interest to students and employees from all library types, and each session is approved for one Georgia Continuing Education (CE) contact hour.
