Abstract

Subject librarians at Auburn have traditionally taught information literacy sessions within the disciplines on an ad hoc basis. While they have wanted a more formal role in courses, their involvement depends on the willingness of instructors-of-record inviting them into the classroom. With upcoming changes to general education outcome assessment, the Libraries’ responsibility for teaching and assessing SLO 1 – information literacy – has taken on greater importance. This, along with other factors, inspired subject librarians to embark on a curriculum mapping project to more systemically embed information literacy instruction across the curriculum. This poster will share the details of this project.
