Applying “Information Creation as a Process” to Library Instruction

A session at 2015 Maryland Library Association & Delaware Library Association Joint Annual Conference

  • James Parrigin
  • Angeline Prichard
  • Sarah Loudenslager
  • Susan Brazer

Thursday 7th May, 2015

1:45pm to 2:45pm (EST)

Salisbury University Libraries has an innovative program that can be scaled up from a small college setting to a larger graduate university system. The program incorporates one of the threshold concepts in ACRL’s new Information Literacy Framework known as “Information Creation as a Process,” which centers around the concept that the usefulness and quality of an information source is partially determined by how it was created. The instruction program provides flexibility while sticking to a consistent scaffold of “Information Creation as a Process” and has opened new windows of opportunity for all science and business classes. Capable of spanning any discipline, this approach has allowed SU librarians to quickly and effectively provide instruction sessions, with all librarians using a LibGuide template as a starting point to tailor instruction to a research assignment. This capitalizes on the small liberal-arts classroom feel in a larger university setting.
