This paper was presented at the recent SLA Conference in Philadelphia.

Aiding Undergraduate Students in Understanding the Scientific Research Process through Collaboration of Chemistry Faculty and the Science Librarian” by Lutishoor Salisbury, M.Sc. and Gwendolyn Mattice, Ph.D.

This paper reports on the successes of a collaborative effort between science faculty and a science librarian at the University of Arkansas in order to help freshman chemistry students increase their information literacy skills to the point that it motivated them to pursue scientific research projects. The results of a follow-up survey to identify whether this collaborative arrangement helped the students in their subsequent engagement in research work are presented.
