The instructors from the leadership course I did a presentation for said that visiting a PRC would be a requirement for their students. The project their class is working on is a group project, and the instructors were encouraging the students to come in with their group, part of their group, or individually.
Because we know that groups of students will likely be coming in, I think it would be a good idea to include some things about collaborative work that the students may not be familiar with. I just recently learned about options like googledocs and netfiles that can make sharing information between group members really easy.
Maybe it would be possible to go over some of the other tools covered in the library's Extreme Googling: Collaboration Tools workshop during our bi weekly training/ staff meetings.
