Presentation Description

One-shot course-related instruction sessions present instructional librarians with the challenge of teaching for information literacy while at the same time “covering the basics.” How can librarians best meet both goals with such little student contact? Drawing upon the work of Carol Kuhlthau and others, this presentation argues for the benefit of making the information search process (ISP) explicit to students during instruction, and organizing and presenting resources accordingly. The presenter will share experiences with this approach at a southern HBCU, and will provide examples of handouts and a research strategies workbook which support ISP integration.
