Action:

  • Contact the library as you develop your syllabus to identify appropriate points for library class sessions and discuss possible assignment design.

Reason:

  • Greater levels of engagement by librarians make for greater student learning gains in information literacy. However, librarians need not be embedded in a class for students to make significant gains; faculty-librarian assignment and syllabi collaboration and then one or two strategically placed library class sessions can produce great gains in students’ information literacy.
