Presentation Description

Teaching information literacy: We do instruction sessions, we collaborate with faculty, design course integrations and assessments, we set up workshops, and put up online tutorials. What more can we do? Maybe nothing ourselves, but we can also allow students help each other. In this presentation, we will outline how we went about setting up an information literacy peer tutor service, from generating interest on campus to finding, hiring, paying, and training tutors, and promoting the program. We will share stories from the field and describe a few difficulties and successes.
