All Together Now: Getting Faculty, Administrators, and Staff Engaged in Information Literacy Assessment
Oakleaf, Megan; Millet, Michelle S.; Kraus, Leah
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v11 n3 p831-852 Jul 2011
Trinity University has established effective strategies for engaging faculty, administrators, and staff in information literacy instruction and assessment. Succeeding in an area in which many libraries struggle, the Coates Library at Trinity University offers a model for libraries seeking to actively engage their campuses through 1) establishing a common definition of information literacy; 2) developing workshops and grants; and 3) engaging in campus-wide information literacy assessment using rubrics. Furthermore, a survey of Trinity faculty, administrators, and staff reveals facilitators and impediments to campus acceptance of collaborative information literacy activities that can inform the evaluation efforts of librarians at other institutions. (Contains 26 notes.)
