Twenty Rhetorical Arts instructors participated in this survey. 89% of respondents encouraged their students to use the RHET 1000 LibGuide (research guide) to help with information literacy assignments, and 83% agreed that the information on the LibGuide was helpful for completing course assignments. 100% of the respondents agreed the process for scheduling a library visit was clear, and 89% thought the library instruction was at least somewhat valuable in helping students complete course assignments. 33% want more emphasis placed on citing sources during the library visit.
