Undergraduate Students as Scholars: Building the Curriculum for a Librarian-Led Undergraduate Research Experience

Academic libraries and librarians are often perceived as secondary players in supporting undergraduate research experiences. However, we can be key players in growing our campus' undergraduate research programs and improving student academic success with library-led undergraduate research experiences. The library at San Jose State University (SJSU) developed the Library Research Scholars Program, which would enable undergraduate students to engage in the entire research cycle from idea to dissemination with a librarian mentor. In this presentation, I will primarily discuss the curriculum, with brief information about the program, structure, funding source, and mentoring elements.

Participants will:
  • Be able to apply the described curriculum to similar programs or initiatives designed to help undergraduate students engage in new knowledge creation.
  • Be able to adapt or incorporate elements of the described curriculum into the information literacy work that they are already doing.
