Collaboration is the key to ensuring that information literacy is a part of every student's educational experience. This new collection from Trudi Jacobson (ACRL Information Literacy Instruction Section Publication Award Winner, 2005) and Thomas P. Mackey brings together proven information literacy collaborations that will change the way your library works with campus faculty, departments, and other instructional units. Chapter contributors, including Elizabeth Dupuis (Head of Instructional Services, UC Berkley), Lijuan Xu (Library Instruction Coordinator, Lafayette College), Christy Stevens (Instructional Services Librarian, University of West Georgia), and more, explore working with undergraduates and graduate students; partnering with humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences (English Literature, Chicano/Latino Studies, Political Science, Environmental Studies, biology) instructors; integrating instruction into first-year writing and research projects; and utilizing Web, video, and other new technologies. Each chapter is written by the collaborating librarian and faculty member and provides a model for collaboration, a description of the lesson’s goals and process, and an assessment of the model’s success. With these winning models, you can make information literacy a part of every student's learning experience!
