Authenticity and Learning: Implications for Reference Librarianship and Information Literacy Instruction
Klipfel, Kevin Michael
College & Research Libraries, v76 n1 p19-30 Jan 2015
This article articulates and defends a student-centered approach to reference and instructional librarianship defined by authentic engagement with students' interests. A review of the history of the construct of authenticity in philosophy, humanistic and existential psychology, and contemporary educational psychology is traced. Connections are drawn between the philosophy of authentic engagement and the tradition in librarianship of "Counselor Librarianship." Recommendations for applications to the library context are then outlined.
