In Spring 2016, Healey Library and the English department at UMass Boston assessed the impact of library research instruction (LRI) on student learning in ENGL 102. 320 students in 24 sections received LRI. To measure this, booklets the students completed in class were evaluated with a rubric and a post-test was administered at the end of the semester. LRI has a measurable impact on student learning, and students retained and transferred what they learned.
