Presentation Description

This presentation will describe how the Library at LaGuardia Community College uses nemawashi techniques to move information literacy (IL) into the college curriculum. Nemawashi is a Japanese term that means to dig around the roots of a tree prior to transplanting it, making the uprooting and movement easier. It can be applied to any situation in which a consensus is desired (e.g. faculty-buy-in) or a goal needs to be reached (e.g. increasing students’ IL skills). We will discuss nemawashi practices that we have found to work well at LaGuardia and include recommendations for how IL can be moved to the forefront of any college curriculum.
