Guides By The Side: The Role Of Technical Services In Information Literacy Instruction, Ruth L. Baker, Jeffrey M. Mortimore 2016 Georgia Southern University

Guides By The Side: The Role Of Technical Services In Information Literacy Instruction, Ruth L. Baker, Jeffrey M. Mortimore

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Presenters will explore the role of technical services in library instruction, specifically as this relates to the ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. This framework places emphasis on research as a highly contextual activity, where researcher practices and dispositions are linked to the communities of practice in which they occur. By extension, such communities exist and evolve semi-independently of any particular manifestation of library resources or services, meaning that libraries must be as prepared to accommodate autonomous practices and dispositions as they are to participate in shaping them. Technical services plays a significant role in determining how ...


Framing Information Literacy: The Importance Of Setting The Stage, Beth Fuchs 2016 University of Kentucky

Framing Information Literacy: The Importance Of Setting The Stage, Beth Fuchs

Beth Fuchs

Do students learn more when information literacy instruction is provided in-person by a librarian, mediated by their course instructor using a librarian-created tutorial, or self-paced using a tutorial? This presentation will focus on assessment results from a multi-sectioned college course targeting first-year students that explored this question and revealed an unexpected answer. Use the results, which are applicable to any instructional setting, to plan your next information literacy session.

Who Is Sitting At The Reference Desk?: The Ever-Changing Concept Of Staffing The Reference Desk At The Bio-Medical Library, Melissa K. Aho, Anne M. Beschnett, Emily Y. Reimer

Collaborative Librarianship

Providing excellent reference service at the University of Minnesota’s Bio-Medical Library has always been a source of pride and a goal to those of us who work at the reference desk. With tightening budgets and shrinking staff numbers, who works at the reference desk is drastically changing. The Bio-Medical Library has always been in a unique position to offer the opportunity of working at the reference desk to staff members across all departments, including those who at other libraries would not normally be given the option to staff the desk. From circulation staff to technical services staff to our ...


Building A Participatory Culture: Collaborating With Student Organizations For Twenty-First Century Library Instruction, Margeaux Johnson, Melissa J. Clapp, Stacey R. Ewing, Amy G. Buhler 2016 Marston Science Library, University of Florida

Building A Participatory Culture: Collaborating With Student Organizations For Twenty-First Century Library Instruction, Margeaux Johnson, Melissa J. Clapp, Stacey R. Ewing, Amy G. Buhler

Collaborative Librarianship

Today’s students are critical thinkers, collaborators, and creators. They expect to participate in twenty-first century learning environments not as passive information consumers (think lectures), but as active contributors (think team-based problem-solving). There are opportunities for instruction librarians to collaborate directly with student-led organizations. These partnerships have the potential to increase attendance at library events and provide platforms for students to engage in richer forms of exploratory learning that incorporate twenty-first century skills. This article will discuss the literature surrounding library instruction collaborations, identify “Librarian–Student Organization Collaborations” as an important form of partnership, and supply specific case studies of ...

Faculty In-Service: How To Boost Academic Library Services, Debra Lucas 2016 Library, D’Youville College, Buffalo, NY

Faculty In-Service: How To Boost Academic Library Services, Debra Lucas

Collaborative Librarianship

This article discusses a collaborative approach to educate college faculty about the library to encourage faculty to engage and participate in services such as library instruction, interlibrary loan, course reserves, and research desk assistance. The more faculty know about the library, the more that they use them. Well informed faculty create students who will also be interested in the library. In-servicing is recommended because it allows librarians to market the library. Creating a well-planned library in-service also creates an opportunity to highlight a librarian’s teaching and research skills.

Peers Don’T Let Peers Perish: Encouraging Research And Scholarship Among Junior Library Faculty, Jill Cirasella, Maura A. Smale

Collaborative Librarianship

Traditional mentoring has many benefits, but peer mentoring can also offer a valuable support structure along the road to tenure. The Junior Faculty Research Roundtable (JFRR) is a peermentoring group for junior library faculty at the colleges and graduate schools of the City University of New York (CUNY). Created to encourage junior library faculty in their scholarly endeavors, JFRR organizes professional development events and facilitates in-person and online conversations on research, writing, and publishing. Now three years old, the group has transformed a large number of scattered junior library faculty into a supportive community of scholars

Collaborating With Library Course Pages And Facebook: Exploring New Opportunities, Laurel H, Andy Howe 2016 University of Minnesota - Twin Cities

Collaborating With Library Course Pages And Facebook: Exploring New Opportunities, Laurel H, Andy Howe

Collaborative Librarianship

Technologies like library course pages and Facebook offer new opportunities for librarians and faculty to collaborate, integrate library content and services into student work spaces, and support and expand student learning. During spring semester 2011, a library course page was developed for a graduate-level education class and sent to the instructor for review. That led to comment and expansion of content on the course page. After this interaction, the librarian joined the course Facebook group to explore this venue as an embedded librarian. This article includes the librarian’s and instructor’s perspectives about this work. Collaborative use of social ...

Expanding Effective 21st Century Access To Historical And Academic Materials: Examples, Strategies And Implications, Carolyn Morris, Mitchell Davis

Collaborative Librarianship

Given the capabilities for digitization that have emerged in recent years along with mobile access to the internet, new library and business partnerships are now not only possible but also compelling in various ways. HTML5 web apps now make available library collections that historically have been closed or difficult to access. A partnership involving The British Library, Microsoft and BiblioLabs realizes some of these new potentials.

Learning From Each Other: A Report On Information Literacy Programs At Orbis Cascade Alliance Libraries, Sue F. Phelps, Heidi . E. K Senior, Karen R. R. Diller

Collaborative Librarianship

Background: Over the last twenty-five years the focus of public services librarianship has migrated toward teaching. Often librarians are not aware of how neighboring institutions are managing that transition. The authors report the results from a survey of information literacy instruction and IL programs in libraries at institutions belonging to the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a consortium in the northwestern United States. Methods: After a literature review and round of testing, a survey link was sent to a contact person at each institution. Results: 38 survey responses were obtained from a range of academic libraries in size and scope. Twenty-seven respondents ...

Librarians And Health Workers: Partnering And Collaborating To Support Free Access To Health Information In Nigeria, Ngozi Blessing Ukachi

Collaborative Librarianship

The well-being of individuals and communities depend on accessibility to accurate health information. A recent study shows the many communities in some regions of Nigeria lack accessibility to this information. Building on the success of partnerships between librarians and health care workers in the delivery of health information in other parts of the world, the Nigerian situation could be greatly improved through a number of strategies, as suggested.

Incorporating Existing Library Partnerships Into Open Access Week Events, Andrea A. Wirth 2016 Oregon State University Libraries

Incorporating Existing Library Partnerships Into Open Access Week Events, Andrea A. Wirth

Collaborative Librarianship

Oregon State University (OSU) Libraries participated in Open Access (OA) Week in 2009 and 2010. In order to expand the range of events offered, the committee members assigned to program planning looked for opportunities to work with partners beyond the library. The collaborative activities developed through these partnerships created settings for in-depth conversations among librarians, faculty, and students about scholarly communication issues. Subject librarians’ relationships with their departments provided opportunities to host events in venues other than the library, which helped, facilitate access to a diverse audience. An established cooperative relationship with the University of Oregon made it possible to ...
