Abstract
Providing all first-year students with foundation research skills at any large university is a difficult challenge. In this interactive session, participants will learn how librarians incorporated these skills into the first-year orientation. From the missteps of 2010 to the revamp for 2011, the presenters will share how they developed cost effective materials, trained peer mentors, and assessed over 1,500 students on this technology-free orientation activity.
