  • Objective: To orient a large number of people to the new PubMed format, the Health Sciences Library needed creative approaches to traditional classroom instruction. The Library’s new approach was the use of offering three simultaneous class formats to help on and off campus users navigate the PubMed changes. Methods: The Health Sciences Library serves users from the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Dentistry, and Public Health, other university programs, and the general public. The increasing number of distance students as well as the growing preference for online formats prompted the Library to try offering multiple instructional formats. Classes were offered in three formats: dedicated online sessions in Adobe Connect, traditional in-person classes in the Library, and live streaming versions during the classes held in the Library. A post-class survey was used to determine the users’ evaluations of the instruction and the format via which it was offered, and registration statistics were gathered for class preference. This poster will examine the user response and satisfaction.
