This past semester, RBMSCL librarians led over 90 instruction sessions with students from Duke University and beyond—including students taking courses on advertising history at Elon University and Johnson & Wales University.

One thought on “Instruction-a-Go-Go”
That’s really impressive, I’m on the board of our local library and we have trouble pulling together just a few courses like these every year. Your Introduction to Old English course looks especially enticing, thanks for the inspiration!
