Sharing the Responsibility: Librarians and Faculty Developing a Community around Information Literacy

Feedback form is now closed.
The ACRL Framework for Information Literacy positions information literacy as a “shared responsibility” that urges librarians and faculty to work together to foster deeper understandings among learners. How do we inspire next-level partnerships when an information literacy program consists of the traditional one-shot approach? Librarians at East Carolina University’s Joyner Library took this as a call to action to try something different. We pitched and were awarded an LSTA EZ grant to design a year-long community of learning program in order to encourage longer-term collaborations between faculty and librarians. In fall 2018, 10 faculty and instructors were selected for the first cohort. The program included multiple components: participation in a three-part workshop series, individual coaching sessions with librarians, an online community to share experiences and strategies, and a suite of resources to support the redesign of existing assignments, development of new class projects, and revamping of library instruction for spring 2019 classes. This presentation will include program evaluation results, examples of how faculty incorporated information literacy into their classes, and insights from the librarians involved. Attendees will be invited to share their own experiences sharing the Framework with faculty and brainstorm future strategies for building information literacy collaborations.
