Presenters will explore the role of technical services in library instruction, specifically as this relates to the ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. During this session, presenters will explore specific areas of overlap between technical and instructional services, especially with regard to selection, organization, and representation of resources to patrons. Presenters will then consider how collaboration across technical and instructional domains supports effective instruction, specifically within the context of the Framework. Presenters will invite participants to share their own experiences, and engage in brainstorming on how technical and instructional services personnel can work together to solve shared instructional challenges.
