Information literacy is a well-established goal of academic libraries, yet so much of the day-to-day work of running and coordinating information literacy programs is absent from professional literature, job descriptions, and library school coursework. While the definition of a program is a coordinated set of activities in service of a specific purpose, what those activities actually consist of - and who is responsible for them - is highly dependent on institutional and interpersonal contexts.
During this interactive three-part webcast series, explore issues related to copyright for print, electronic, and media reserves.
Signature pedagogies are specific ways of teaching that move students to develop the habits of mind of a professional or disciplinarian (Ciccone, 2009). This concept is widely discussed in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning literature in other disciplines, but has yet to make its way into common conversation in information literacy. Throughout the four weeks, participants will spend time in conversation to deepen their understanding of the mental processes they go through when they work with information, while also discussing commonly used pedagogies to teach information literacy.
Despite the proliferation of leadership and mentoring programs, literature around leadership skill development, and related discussions in our professional associations, academic librarians still find themselves in leadership and management positions without advanced training or sufficient preparation to confidently and successfully fill those roles. ACRL recently published three books that address different aspects of leadership. In this webcast, participants will hear from the authors key take-aways from their work.
This webcast will address some common misperceptions about fair use, how to understand fair use, and explore some case-law examples.
During this interactive webcast, we will discuss methods, recommended practices, and rationales for employing games and gamification in information literacy, from small portions of one-shot instruction sessions to semester-long credit-bearing courses.
Are you interested in measuring learning outcomes to drive change, make data-informed decisions, and demonstrate the impact of programs and services at your library?

During this interactive three-part webcast series, explore issues related to sustainabilty and the library.
This webcast will unpack some of these challenges and will consider the ways in which librarians can equip students with vital information literacy, media literacy, and critical thinking skills. While we will focus on undergraduate students, much of the content will be applicable to other learners and we welcome the perspective and ideas of those who work more with graduate school students.
