Studying the Relationship Between Research Toolkit Attendance and Student Success

The University Libraries have offered Research Toolkit workshops since 2014. In 2015, we began recording attendance. With grant funding from the Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) and the Friends of the Libraries, we were able to study student outcomes for students who had attended either a workshop or an appointment with a librarian between Fall 2015 and Summer 2017. The grants paid for services from the COSM Statistical Consulting Center, provided by Michael Bottomley. The documents below include the full statistical report and a summary of that report. More information will be forthcoming.
