Outcomes
Outcomes Indicators

  • Citation Analysis Effective as Information Literacy Assessment

  • Current methods meet some of the ALA/ACRL/STS Standards

  • Students misunderstand appropriate use of scholarly journal articles. Students show an obvious preference for web resources.

  • Proposed Mid-Semester Citation Review



Conclusions
Conclusions Indicators

  • A quantitative approach enabled by trained engineering librarians working in tandem with engineering design instructors is critical to enhancing the breadth and rigor by which engineering design students reference their work.

  • We further assert that methods described herein be considered as an additional criterion for ABET accreditation.
