Extending Library Instruction: Using Blogger to Collaborate, Connect, and Instruct

The expectations placed on library instruction programs by the Association of College and Research Libraries are high. Many universities also include information literacy competencies as learning objectives to be assessed at the institutional level. With those standards in mind, it is becoming increasingly difficult to adequately educate students with regard to information literacy competencies in the traditional instruction model. This paper will discuss the outcomes of a semester-long project in which blogs were used to facilitate interaction with students, build relationships, and increase student exposure to library resources.
