Librarians may not typically consider consulting usage statistics when preparing for an instructional session. However, doing so may allow them to take a critical approach to instruction and faculty collaborations. Usage statistics, though imperfect, allow librarians to pinpoint underutilized electronic resources and, when combined with qualitative data, may help librarians determine what subject-specific resources are overlooked by students. Learn how librarians may partner with faculty to proactively promote library resources through instructional sessions, instructional tools, and assignment design. Such collaborations may improve use of library resources and encourage students to incorporate marginalized resources, works, and voices into their course work.
