Abstract

This installment of our continuing column on the connections between educational psychology and student library work explores the important roles of goal setting, mindset, and self-regulation. We describe how reference librarians may support students' goal selection and help students develop positive attitudes toward library research. Librarians' efforts to help students successfully complete library-related assignments can be enhanced by understanding the mechanisms of self-regulation.
