Abstract

Librarians from the A.J. Eastwood Library at Limestone College have successfully partnered with faculty in their efforts to teach students research skills. Through a variety of formats (including online class webinars, instructor-specific LibGuides, the Embedded Librarian in Blackboard and progressive research instruction sessions) as well as outreach initiatives (such as “Tea & Tidbits,” which is a monthly faculty training session, and Faculty Recognition Day), librarian-faculty collaboration is now at its highest peak. The presenters will share with attendees the evolution of these successful partnerships and also identify initiatives that worked well and those that did not, resulting in a “best practices” gleaned from lessons learned.

Presentation Description

Aside from presenting the material, the presenters will also engage the attendees by brainstorming faculty-librarian partnerships that may work for the attendees, depending on the attendees' particular circumstance; also, a brief exercise on identifying relevant and valuable stakeholders in this process.
