The team at C.G. O’Kelly Library is alway pushing the envelope in terms of advocacy and establishing new partnerships on campus and beyond.  Presenters will showcase how collegiate (football) coaches are encompassing information & digital literacy skills on and off the playing field.  This session will entail a 25 minute mini documentary, with a Q/A at specfic intervals throughout, that unveils how a library can market/promote information literacy and identify atypical strategies for outreach efforts.The mini documentary also highlights many competences and aptitudes athletic coaches need to demonstrate in their profession. Many people are not cognizant of the research, assessment and schematics that are immersed into creating a sound game plan for an opponent. The art of game planning is analogous to the many skills and competencies researchers, librarians and other critical thinkers exhibit. Participants will leave the presentation with options on how:
  • To market & promote the concepts of information literacy (ACRL Frames)
  • Identify atypical strategies for outreach efforts with other entities for teaching and learning
  • The potential impact of a collaboration can benefit the library

Intended audience: Experience with knowledge and language of collegiate football
