During the summer of 2014, the science librarian at St. John Fisher College got behind the bench and joined a working group in the cell biology lab. With no formal science education, the first-time pipetter plunged deep into lab culture and worm genetics. Returning to the role of student revealed many unexpected emotions and teachable moments for this veteran library instructor that will reshape her approach to library instruction with science students. Specifically how to address fear and frustration in the classroom, while leaving opportunities for fun.
