Project Abstract

This study puts forth a process of researching programmatic information needs, developing learning outcomes, and creating a curriculum map within the graduate-level Professional Psychology curriculum. Through content analysis of an entire year of syllabi and a survey of students, the information needs are gleaned using a grounded theory process, and then turned into learning outcomes. The curriculum map that results from determining which learning outcomes fit best within specific courses in the curriculum provides a guide for the instruction librarian to teach useful and relevant instruction sessions. This study aims to advance the knowledge of information needs of students in graduate Professional Psychology programs and to develop a method for integrating instruction to meet these needs.
