Abstract

This session will describe a unique collaboration that resulted in development of a strategic research assignment design supported by relevant information literacy sessions. This effort stems from an existing relationship between research librarians and an instructor who was previously a graduate assistant in Research & Instruction Services and became an instructor of a general education course in Communication Sciences and Disorders. Through this collective, a synergistic arrangement developed where librarians contribute to research assignment design and the instructor contributes to developing the information literacy sessions to prepare students for finding, evaluating, and understanding relevant scholarly articles early in their college career. We will provide suggestions for developing librarian-instructor relationships that help identify student pain points as well as guide the development of customized classroom assignments relevant to beginning a student’s research path. We will also introduce strategies we have found successful in helping students locate and synthesize relevant scholarly articles, in the classroom and online, for more effective information literacy session activities.
