38 Association of Research Libraries Research Library Issues 290 2017 students who come with questions that have not been answered by tutorials because they are unique to their projects. Our first step towards flipping the classroom for library instruction has been the creation of an online learning task force. This group is charged with creating videos and increasing staff proficiency so that instructors can easily create short videos on their own following best practices of communication and branding. This will free up time for face-to-face interactions that tackle unique problems and teach students not how to do research, but what research is.
