Public, large, non-residential four-year and master’s college with separate Health Professions Library (HPL) serving 1,300+ health professions students. The Hunter College Libraries offer over 180 LibGuides via the “Research Guides” link on library’s home page. HPL librarians teach one-shot and other information literacy (IL) sessions for students.


Conclusions :

Students who attended IL sessions showed increased awareness of LibGuides. • Demographic factors affected the association between IL attendance and LibGuide awareness. • Instruction librarians should employ LibGuides when teaching IL sessions to promote awareness of these resources. • Library staff should encourage patrons to visit the library’s home page to find information resources. • Events such as orientation sessions for higher education opportunity programs represent a chance for library staff to promote these resources to students from underrepresented groups.
