For two different semesters, the author—an academic library liaison for a large school of music—had the opportunity to teach a graduate- level course in the school as an instructor of record. This chapter will detail the librarian’s experiences in teaching a required research methods course for graduate music students. More specifically, the chapter will cover the author’s approach to course development, assessment, and instructional methods, as well as time management strategies and comparing and contrasting the two semesters.


This chapter originally appeared in Transforming Libraries for Graduate Students, edited by Crystal Renfro and Cheryl Stiles, 41-50. Chicago, IL: Association of College and Research Libraries, 2018.
