Providing effective library instruction often relies on matching instructional methods and formats to specific groups of users with varying research needs. This panel session will include speakers from four different institutions. Each speaker will talk about how their instructional program addresses the distinctive needs of their respective constituencies. They will address topics such as the different formats in which they provide instruction, how instruction is marketed at their institutions, and any instructional innovations they have attempted or implemented.
