Abstract

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.
