Successful Library Curriculum Integration

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With headlines like “Higher education: Is college worth it?” and “College Graduates Don’t Always Out-Earn High School Grads?” flooding news stations, the higher education industry as a whole is pressed to prove that education is more than worth the debt of admission. This pressure will quickly push, if it hasn’t already, the academic library to tell their value stories and prove their ROI. One of the ways that libraries are successfully doing so is through data proving student outcomes resulting from tighter integration of the library into student workflow and classroom instruction. With the additional demands of imminent new ACRL information literacy standards, we would like to take the opportunity to discuss deeper opportunities for collaboration among librarians, faculty, instructional designers, and students. Drawing from best practices, research, and reading, we will discuss ways to work with faculty to integration information literacy and research practices into the curriculum. Audience members are invited to come to share their own best practices, suggestions, and experiences as well. The objective of the session is to evaluate ways to use faculty/librarian collaboration to improve student outcomes and promote the value of the library as a campus institution.
