We are excited to announce that registration for the 2018-2019 HEDS Research Practices Survey is now open: https://hedsconsortium.wufoo.com/forms/20182019-heds-research-practices-survey/.

The HEDS Research Practices Survey assesses students’ research experiences and their skills in finding, evaluating, and citing sources. Faculty and librarians can use student- and course-level data from this survey to develop pedagogies and materials to advance students’ research skills.

You can administer the survey at the beginning of the fall term to identify incoming first-year students’ research skills and knowledge. You can also use a follow-up administration of the survey to track your students’ growth from the beginning to the end of a course or the first college year. In the spring, we also offer comparison results for institutions surveying their senior students.

You can learn more about the survey and these administration options, as well as download a copy of the instrument at: https://www.hedsconsortium.org/heds-research-practices-survey/?utm_source=IACRL_listserv&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=RPS_Fall18

We also recommend sharing this information with other people on your campus who might be interested in the survey, such as instruction librarians or those responsible for first-year programs.

Please feel free to contact me (ahernandez@hedsconsortium.org) with any questions about the survey,

We would like to invite you to consider submitting a chapter proposal for Academic Library Services for Graduate Students: Supporting Future Academics and Professionals, to be published by Libraries Unlimited.

Editors: Carrie Forbes and Peggy Keeran, University of Denver Libraries

Proposal Submission Deadline:  Monday, September 17, 2018

Book Overview:

As more and more students attend graduate programs, either at the master’s or doctoral level, many higher education institutions have established professional development programs to help ensure that graduate students learn the wide range of skills needed to be successful as both students and as future professionals or academics. The editors of this volume invite contributors to propose case studies and theoretical essays on academic library services for graduate students that support their multiple roles and identities as students, and as future faculty members or professionals, as well as addressing the complex social and emotional issues related to their other roles as parents, working adults, caretakers, and more.

For more details on how to submit a proposal, please see: https://tinyurl.com/y9fcyk6k
