Back to the Future: Prospects for Education Faculty and Librarian Collaboration Thirty Years Later
Scripps-Hoekstra, Lindy; Hamilton, Erica R.
Education Libraries, v39 n1 2016
Thirty years ago, education conference panelists shared concerns regarding collaboration between education faculty and librarians and they presented ideas for expanding these partnerships. A review of their ideas raises an important question: In what ways have their ideas for collaboration and partnership been realized? To answer this question, the authors conducted a review of the literature regarding education faculty-librarian collaboration. Findings indicate that when collaborating with education faculty, there are three roles librarians have embodied: librarian-as-reference, librarian-as-consultant, and librarian-as-instructor. These roles contribute to the realization of the panelists' proposed ideas and offer suggestions for future collaboration and research possibilities.
