Tutor profile: Robert M.
Systems Librarian with a Background in Reference Services and Information Literacy
Tutor Satisfaction Guarantee
A "behind the scenes" librarian with previous experience providing reference services and helping library users become more self-sufficient in utilizing library resources. My focus while getting my MLIS was on reference services, information-seeking behavior, and information literacy. My goal is to help students become better information seekers, by virtue of understanding concepts and techniques.
Mostly one-on-one instruction in the use of library resources.
