Incorporating Undergraduate Advising in Teaching Information Literacy: Case Study for Academic Librarians as Advisors
Young, Courtney L.
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v34 n2 p139-144 Mar 2008
The National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) Council for the Advancement of Standards (CAS) provides program guidelines for student learning and development outcomes. These recommended academic advising guidelines parallel those of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Information Literacy Competency Standards For Higher Education. Both standards focus on student behaviors and outcomes in higher education. The parallels that exist between academic advising and academic librarianship are confirmed by the case study described in this paper, in which an academic librarian served as an undergraduate academic advisor for one year.
