1:00pm Afternoon Presentation and Break Out Session:
Ann Marie Smeraldi from Cleveland State University will present- Get the Party Started: Campus Collaborations that Support Information Literacy Initiatives
A successful information literacy program, like any good party, begins with strategic planning and a crowd of eager participants. Identifying and inviting campus partners to promote information literacy initiatives and embed them within the curriculum and programs is not an easy task, but these collaborations are essential if librarians hope to move beyond the one-shot and create meaningful learning experiences for first-year students and opportunities for library assessment. During this session, participants will hear about one librarian’s experiences working with campus partners and its impact on the library program. Hands on exercises will assist participants in identifying their instruction goals, evaluating their campus environment, and outlining a plan to get the party started. Instruction librarians eager to break out of the constraints imposed by one-shots will enjoy this opportunity to explore new strategies for freeing themselves and their students.
