I am the Instructional Services Outreach Librarian in a mid-sized regional university. I teach our credit-bearing information literacy course (link goes to a peer-reviewed article showing a statistically significant relationship between taking our course and future success in college), do my share of the reference duties, and come up with outreach ideas to get students into the library and faculty interested in our instructional services.
So far, I’m having a blast learning the ropes! Most days I feel like I have no idea what I’m doing and am making it up as I go, but I’m learning a lot and managing to make some good stuff happen!
This blog has become a place to write up what I’ve tried, including ideas that went well and ones that flopped, post ideas I want to try, and hopefully have a sounding board to get your take on ideas (and even some of your ideas to steal!).
