Objective – The purpose of this study was to develop and review the
effectiveness of a new evidence-based approach for teaching library
research support.

Methods – Formative assessment, through two variations of the One Minute
Paper model, is used to poll the experiences of university researchers in
library research support sessions. Prior to a session, Polling One Minute
Papers (POMPs) assess what researchers know about topics that will be
covered in the session. After a session, Reflective One Minute Papers
(ROMPs) review whether university researchers achieved the intended
learning outcomes of the session. POMPs were used for 16 sessions and ROMPs
were used for a subset of 11 of these sessions. Examples of responses from
the POMPs and ROMPs were presented to describe and analyse the
effectiveness of this approach for library support of research.
