Abstract

The liaison librarian to a college with a substantial and growing online learning population began using asynchronous, personalised video instruction as an online replacement for the traditional face-to-face, one-on-one bibliographic instruction reference appointment. This project was informed by the framework of metaliteracy and the “See One, Do One, Teach One” instruction methodology utilised by the health sciences. While formal outcomes assessment has yet to be conducted, unsolicited comments from students are overwhelmingly positive, and preliminary data analysis of usage and engagement reveals several promising trends. 65% of all watched videos were watched for the entire duration of the video, and the liaison librarian found video creation to be less time-consuming than scheduling appointments.


The liaison librarian to a university with a substantial and growing online learning population began using asynchronous, personalised video instruction as an online replacement for the traditional face-to-face, one-on-one bibliographic instruction reference appointment. This project was informed by the framework of metaliteracy and the ‘See One, Do One, Teach One’ instruction methodology utilised by the health sciences. While formal outcomes assessment has yet to be conducted, unsolicited comments from students are overwhelmingly positive, and preliminary data analysis of usage and engagement reveals several promising trends. Of all watched videos 65% were watched for the entire duration, and the liaison librarian found video creation to be less time-consuming than scheduling appointments. Providing personalised video instruction tailored to the individual student’s information literacy need is a novel approach that may benefit online learners and librarians alike.
