1Hammond, C.C. ; Brown, S.W.: Citation searching : search smarter & find more.
In: Computers in libraries. 28(2008) no.5, S.10-.
Abstract: At the University of Connecticut, we have been enticing graduate students to join graduate student trainers to learn how to answer the following questions and improve the breadth of their research: Do you need to find articles published outside your primary discipline? What are some seminal articles in your field? Have you ever wanted to know who cited an article you wrote? We are participating in Elsevier's Student Ambassador Program (SAmP) in which graduate students train their peers on "citation searching" research using Scopus and Web of Science, two tremendous citation databases. We are in the fourth semester of these training programs, and they are wildly successful: We have offered more than 30 classes and taught more than 350 students from March 2007 through March 2008. Chelsea is a Ph.D. candidate in the department of communication science at the University of Connecticut (UConn) and was trained as a librarian; she was one of the first peer trainers in the citation searching program. Stephanie is an electronic resource librarian at the University of Connecticut and is the librarian coordinating the program. Together, we would like to explain what we teach in the classes in the hopes of helping even more researchers perform better searches.

2Hammond, C. ; Mitchell, E.: Library instruction for the professions : informations needs and libraries.
In: Reference services review. 25(1997) no.2, S.79-86.
Abstract: Reports on a survey on the information seeking behaviour of practitioners in accounting, architecture, psychology and recreation/tourism. The aim was to improve information skills instruction programmes for students. Fewer than half of the survey respondents had discipline-specific library instruction. Practitioners identify a need for information but a low use of electronic resources. Data supports the necessity of information skills for those entering the professions. Instructions should be information centred rather than library centred. Continuing education for professionals' information finding is needed. Makes suggestions for changes in library instruction
