In this presentation, three librarians with diverse roles and employed at three dramatically different academic institutions (a community college, a private liberal arts college, and a public land-grant university) will discuss the ways in which their professional praxis of instruction related to “Information Has Value” converge and diverge. From these varied experiences, the presenters will then propose a tiered model of high-impact approaches to incorporating aspects of the scholarly communication librarian portfolio into library instruction, ranging from introductory community college writing courses to courses for students completing a capstone for their major. The presenters will also suggest ways to scaffold “Information Has Value” across a disciplinary curriculum, including strategies for incorporating stakeholders from across library units for maximum impact.


Presented on May 5th, 2017 at the California Conference on Library Instruction (CCLI 2017) at the University of San Francisco.
