Information Literacy: A Collaborative Endeavor
Mackey, Thomas P.; Jacobson, Trudi E.
College Teaching, v53 n4 p140 Fall 2005
The authors propose that information literacy initiatives must be a shared concern of faculty and librarians. This position is reinforced by accreditation standards that view information literacy as central to student learning and best addressed within a collaborative framework. Two models for collaboration are posited and described: teaching alliances and campus partnerships. Illustrative examples of both approaches from the University at Albany are provided.
