GSU Librarian & Nutrition Faculty Member Co-Author Article

Susan Smith, one of GSU Library’s health sciences subject librarians, and Meera Penumetcha, a faculty member in the Division of Nutrition, have just had an article published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Allied Health. The article is entitled Librarian Involvement in a Nutrition Undergraduate Research Course: Preparing Nutrition Students for Evidence-based Practice and describes how the authors collaborated to teach literature searching skills to students in a nutrition Introduction to Research course. Results from a questionnaire given to students at the beginning and end of the course are also discussed. The survey results indicated that:

“By the end of the course, JAHstudents were more comfortable in libraries and with using library resources; they used the campus library more frequently; they were more confident in their ability to find high-quality information on nutrition-related topics and identify strengths and weaknesses of different information sources; and they felt they gained skills that will help them achieve their educational and career goals.”
