Presentation Description

The popular notion of the artist as an individual set apart often plays out in the academic library as a missed opportunity; art students often either never enter the library or never realize the full potential of its resources to assist their studies and creative output. As the literature and experience have shown, studio artists have unique and pressing visual and information literacy needs that are often not addressed in the typical information literacy offerings. This paper will describe the development of collaboration between the art librarian and the photography faculty at Oakland University to integrate library instruction throughout the curriculum and engage the students with the library.
