Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe how library orientation is given on this college campus to reduce library anxiety and normalize the usage of the library.
Design/methodology/approach – Orientation was delivered using a multimodal presentation. Librarians created a three segment session using an MTV cribs style video with a library tour, polling technology hosted in the cloud and visual storytelling.
Findings – Incoming freshmen and transfer students in the library orientation left with the impression of the library as a welcoming space that is frequently used by all students at college.
Practical implications – This information will enable academic libraries to plan a similar library orientation session to first year students.
Originality/value – The paper highlights the poster presentation given at the Association of College and Research Libraries' biennial conference held in Philadelphia on 30 March-2 April. This information will enable academic libraries to plan a similar library orientation session to first year students.
