The second year of any college student’s journey is a time of great personal and academic transformation. How we support these students can have a profound impact on their persistence, grades, and graduation rates—and can also shape how they view themselves and their community. While second-years currently represent the most frequently overlooked cohort on campus, the library’s unique role offers several opportunities to address this shortcoming. With the right programming, strategies, and instruction, librarians can build off of the momentum established in the first-year experience, and propel students successfully into their chosen disciplines and beyond. This publication shares concrete ways librarians can support success of undergraduate students, with a focus on second-year students.
