Derek Sanderson, assistant librarian for Reference Services, continued this semester’s Investigating Research on Campus (iROC) series with “How and Why Do Students Use the Library?” on Thursday, November 1. He was joined by Gina Shelton, head librarian at Dominican College.

The goal of the college’s iROC is to “provide a forum for Mount faculty, staff, and students to showcase their research endeavors with both Mount Saint Mary College and the local community in a manner easily understood by attendees,” explained series coordinators Evan Merkhofer, assistant professor of biology, and Jennifer Park, assistant librarian for access and outreach services. Presentations include research proposals, initial data collection, and completed research projects.

Mount Saint Mary College is ranked a Top-Tier University by U.S. News & World Report, and offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs for careers in healthcare, business, education, social services, communications, media, and the liberal arts.
