Trudi E. Jacobson, MLS, MA, Distinguished Librarian, is the Head of the Information Literacy Department at the University at Albany. She has been deeply involved with teaching and information literacy throughout her career, and from 2013-2015 co-chaired the Association of College & Research Libraries Task Force that created the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. With Prof. Thomas P. Mackey, she co-developed metaliteracy. Her most recent work focuses on open pedagogy and how the students’ learning experience can be enhanced in such settings by metaliteracy. She regularly teaches an information literacy course for upper-level undergraduates that uses editing in Wikipedia as a way to understand core concepts from metaliteracy and information literacy; an information literacy instruction graduate course; and has taught a first year experience course in which students created an OER for other first year students (https://sites.google.com/view/ualbanyforfirstyearstudents/home). She is the co-author or co-editor of 14 books, including three about metaliteracy, and numerous scholarly articles and book chapters. Prof. Jacobson received the ACRL Miriam Dudley Instruction Librarian Award in 2009. Her website is: http://www.trudijacobson.com/.
