I'm Catherine Pellegrino, a reference librarian and the instruction coordinator at the Cushwa-Leighton Library at Saint Mary's College, a Catholic women's college in Notre Dame, Indiana (adjacent to South Bend). I have primary responsibility for library instruction and information literacy at the library, and I also work the reference desk, do outreach, work on our web page, make noises about instructional technology, and generally get in people's way. This blog is a place for me to share my library instruction and reference experiences, sort through and think publicly about what works and what doesn't, and engage in conversations about library instruction, information literacy, and (to quote Iris Jastram's tweets) referencing generally.
