Presentation Description

The development of a new First Year Seminar program at our college brings together an instructional team that combines teaching faculty, librarians and counselors to work with students to give them the stepping stones needed to be successful in college. Approaching this project from a community college perspective gives librarians the opportunity to address information literacy learning gaps at an ideal time in their college career. This presentation details how librarians created support material and workshops to increase faculty awareness of information literacy techniques and how to intentionally incorporate these skills throughout the class.
