Event Title

Concurrent 3: Cultivating a Community of Scholars: Crafting a Virtual Information Literacy Hub to Support Student Research

Session Format

Virtual Full Paper Presentation

Proposal Synopsis

Looking for a new and innovative way to ensure your students have access to information literacy instruction? This presentation will focus on how one library embarked on a journey to provide information literacy instruction when a change in curriculum altered the library’s role in a first-term research methods course. Enter the Scholarly Skills Community: a virtual learning landscape, consisting of more than 20 modules designed to fill gaps in information literacy and research skills. Embedded into the University’s learning management system, the Scholarly Skills Community is an interactive, asynchronous destination for users to cultivate new knowledge and earn micro-credentials on topics related to information literacy and scholarly writing. An emphasis will be placed on the creation, design, and launch of the Scholarly Skills Community. The presenters will also share their experiences partnering with the University’s Writing Center, working with the instructional design team, receiving initial feedback, and aspirations for expansion.
