Becoming an academic librarian

As an increasing number of student access academic information online, librarians are faced with a teaching library skills and critical thinking skills to a population that does not come to the library. Librarians at my home library decided to reach students virtually with instructional videos through YouTube, iTunesU, and the homepage, on topics we considered essential for coursework in the behavioral and mental health fields. We continue to seek user comments and new avenues to reach out to new populations.
