A Different Three-legged Stool: the
As so much else in higher education, the supportive relationship
among faculty, students, and librarians is in a state of flux. A
newly-released study conducted at four Chicago universities (What
Students Don’t Know, Inside Higher Ed, posted August 22,
makes clear that each has differing expectations about the
information literacy outcomes to be achieved by working together as
a different kind of three-legged stool. Information literacy works
differently in different disciplines, and librarians are vital in
helping us guide our students in finding, evaluating, and using
information. Please join us for exploration of new uses for
library resources with faculty and librarians who are collaborating
to deal with these issues.
