Information Literacy Meet-Up

In the world of bibliographic instruction, librarians know that “anything goes.” Your role varies with each class, instructors’ expectations, planned activities, goals in teaching, and the inevitable chaos (and joy) that can result.

You are invited to join the morning session of the Information Literacy Interest Group (IPAL) to discuss challenges, successes, and other unique situations that are part of a teaching librarian’s life. The IPAL Conference will be held on May 19, 2016 at Grand View University in Des Moines.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a description of a recent teaching activity. The session will feature time to explore your selection in light of the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education. Those with an interest in library instruction, whether you’re from a small, private college, or a large, Regent university, are welcome to attend! This session runs from 10:15 a.m.-noon.

Questions about the upcoming IL group session can be directed to Cara Stone, Grand View University, Becky Canovan, University of Dubuque, and Kristy Raine, Mount Mercy University.
