Reaching these practicing professionals will require creative solutions not yet devised. Librarians could prepare and deliver mini-workshops or lectures for upper-level courses, in efforts to address assignment specific information literacy needs and to improve student success. Besides the difficulty of synchronizing schedules, some faculty believe that students need to learn on their own at this point in the program. Although this is largely true, certain assignments are challenging enough to cause traffic jams at the reference desk as groups of students seek assistance with research questions that require multistep research pathways and access to resources outside of Seneca Libraries.
