Abstract

Information Literacy Librarians in Belk Library and Information Commons are mapping a new strategy in response to a new academic focus in General Education on the campus of Appalachian State University. Belk Library’s Information Literacy and Instruction Program is moving from the traditional one-shot bibliographic instruction (BI) session to a curriculum integrated information literacy (IL) approach, which begins with students in the first year and extends through their capstone experience. This presentation will outline the process, which includes a revision and implementation of the University’s General Education Program, the development of academically-centered First Year Programs, and the building of partnerships between librarians and classroom faculty.
