Describes and discusses a survey of five graduate level classes at Providence College that participated in a bibliographic instruction session as part of their course instruction that was presented by a Providence College librarian and designed exclusively for their particular courses. Almost three-quarters of the students surveyed indicated that they had benefited from the instructional session. Students at least half way through their program were as likely as new students to indicate they found the instruction useful.
