Presentation Description

Academic librarians teach students how to locate and evaluate information, but can students synthesize their sources with their own voices when they leave the library? Presenters will discuss how librarians promote the “use” component of information literacy by partnering with classroom faculty and the campus writing center. It will be demonstrated that annotated bibliographies, peer workshops, and writing center consultations are critical bridges in the synthesis process. Attendees will be invited to share their own creative ideas and experiences with extending information literacy through electronic polling, brainstorming, and think-pair-share activities.
