Long Description

The NCU Library and the Instructional Design Librarian factor into the lifecycle for over 350 course designs annually. The ID Librarian takes part in course design by locating, integrating, and reviewing resources for course inclusion, designing and collaborating on assignments requiring library use, training on library resources and services as well as information literacy outcomes, creating learning objects to support curriculum, fielding resource acquisition recommendations, and providing guidance on LMS integration and copyright requests. The advantages of having a librarian embedded in the instructional design process include the use of library resources, collection development efforts targeted to support courses, integration of LibGuides and other library learning objects to support information literacy within the curriculum, and institutional cost savings by sourcing course materials through library acquisitions and OER. This poster will present effective strategies for engaging with instructional design and positioning the library as a key stakeholder within course planning. Regardless of the model in use at your institution, the ideas can help inspire a new model or give new life to an existing model.

Strategies for engaging with instructional design and positioning the library as a key stakeholder within course planning include high-touch interactions, consultations, attendance at kick-off meetings, and outreach management through LibCRM. The ID Librarian attends every course kick-off where stakeholders lay out course build requirements and the librarian explains her embedded role to the Subject Matter Expert. The ID Librarian employs a high-touch approach with each SME, adapting instruction and level of assistance depending on the SME’s familiarity with the online library. In addition to real-time, personalized support, the ID Librarian offers one-to-one consultations. All interactions with stakeholders involved in the course design process are tracked using Springshare LibCRM. Your institution can leverage LibCRM to build dynamic dialogue and promote outreach with faculty and instructional designers.
