Librarian Attitudes toward Librarians Teaching Nonlibrary Subjects
Perret, Robert
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v18 n2 p315-330 Apr 2018
This study examines the current attitudes of librarians toward the practice of librarians teaching classes beyond the domain of library skills and information literacy. An electronic survey was sent to ILI-L (Information Literacy Instruction List), the Association of College and Research Libraries library instruction e-mail list. The author tabulated the results and parsed them to extract a useful summary. This survey found that attitudes remain mixed. However, a positive or negative opinion did not seem correlated to institution size or type, but only to an individual's job function. Surprisingly, instruction librarians had the most negative opinion of this practice.
