Karen Evans (Reference/Instruction librarian, Public Services Department) has been selected to participate in ALA’s Association of College & Research Libraries’ Instruction Section Mentoring Program. As a mentor Karen will be matched up with a librarian who is new to instruction or to the ACRL’s Instruction Section so that the neophyte can improve his or her teaching skills and confidence in the classroom. Mentors for the program are chosen for their experience and passion for teaching.
Karen is one of the library’s most active instructors. Among her current teaching projects is “Murder, Mystery, and Mayhem.” The twice weekly, 75 minute University 101 class will consist of equal parts of information literacy and criminal justice.
