Early on in the semester, I was able to follow Denise along to an instructional session she led for graduate students in the Philanthropy graduate program at IUPUI. The Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, according to its website, is “the world’s first school dedicated solely to the study and teaching of philanthropy.” The instruction session was a little over an hour-hour and a half long and consisted of Denise introducing the students to library resources and ways to search the library catalog and website for what they might need for papers and other research. I was so impressed with how quickly she was able to read the room and determine what level of library and research literacy the students had and how she was able to adjust her presentation accordingly. Many of the students weren’t aware of how to use the library catalog and didn’t know what search strategies to use to find items, and Denise was able to succinctly show them how to do so in a way that was easy to understand. On our way back to the Archives, she and I chatted a bit about the different types of instruction sessions she offers for classes and other groups of students and how she caters her instruction style and content to fit their needs. Although I’ve experienced several library instruction sessions as a student, it was neat to hear about how Denise plans and prepares to teach them and watch as an observer rather than merely as a student.
