Palo Alto College

San Antonio, Texas


Providing face-to-face reference and instruction services away from the physical library, the Library a la Carte project is designed to meet students “where they are.” Using a modified electric golf cart, the librarians set up a library services “station” outside the student center. Reference librarians take turns on duty, instructing students on the use of library resources, including e-books and streaming video. They also promote the Library’s Information Research Certificate program, a series of instruction sessions available in-person or online.
