As academic libraries began using discovery tools, a debate arose regarding when, where, and how to teach students to use discovery tools and incorporate the ACRL Information Literacy Framework. Depending on the type of institution (2-year vs. 4-year+), mode of instruction (online vs. in-person), and learning outcomes (practical skills vs. theoretical modeling), librarians face challenges when teaching a discovery tool. This panel discussion will explore these challenges and discuss potential best practices. This is a joint program presented by CJCLS, DLS, and IS.
