My librarian: Personalized research clinics and the academic library.
The current information environment can pose many problems for undergraduate students conducting research. Students can gain valuable assistance through personalized research clinics (PRCs), highly individualized, scheduled consultations with a librarian that focus on a specific research need. This paper describes PRC programs at three diverse institutions. Logistics, publicity methods, program analysis, and assessment issues are addressed, and the benefits of the labor-intensive service are weighed against other job demands. The authors presented a program on this topic at ACRL X in 2001 and include in this paper an examination of issues shared by audience members and responses to those issues.
