Addressing the Needs of WVU Faculty

Faculty involvement and collaboration in information literacy instruction is critical. Librarians promote the information literacy program to faculty on a continuous basis. Through collaboration with teaching faculty, librarians are better positioned to integrate information literacy into the curriculum. Together faculty and librarians design exercises and assignments to assist students in practicing research based skills. Awareness of information literacy concepts and skills are important to faculty in their own research and teaching. The Information Literacy Course Enhancement Project (ILCEP) has modelled this kind of faculty librarian collaboration for West Virginia University since 2009. Librarians also provide information literacy instruction assistance to subject faculty in information research skills. These are delivered through workshops and one-on-one consultations that introduce new or enhanced discipline-specific resources to faculty.
