Today's shifting academic information landscape provides many challenges and opportunities for librarians to become change agents for campus-wide initiatives and competencies. As we educate and inspire diverse communities of scholars, librarians are encouraged to seek and explore collaborative opportunities that arise at the intersections of scholarly communication and information literacy. The benefits of educational opportunities at the intersections are two-fold:
---Students, who are often asked to participate in scholarly conversations without clear understanding of the scholarly information ecology, become aware of the social and economic influences tied to information, and see themselves as members of that scholarly marketplace.
---Faculty, who are knowledgeable about scholarly communication in their field, gain a greater sense of information literacy practices and dispositions for themselves and their students.
This interactive workshop will empower participants to leverage the intersections of scholarly communication and information literacy in order to develop education and outreach initiatives that address the aspirations and needs of scholars, students, and researchers at their institutions. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to network and build communities of practice focusing on the following themes and outcomes:
Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy
-Identify your own working definitions for scholarly communication and information literacy.
-Examine the intersecting cornerstones of both definitions in order to generate learning opportunities for students, faculty, etc.
-Explore successful examples of librarianship at the intersections.
-Brainstorm creative ways to create and capitalize on informal and formal education opportunities.
Institutional Priorities and Alignment
-Identify library and institutional priorities and goals that invite educational opportunities based on the intersections of scholarly communication and information literacy.
The Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Educations as a tool for creating learning experiences at the intersections
-Analyze the Framework in order to choose appropriate direction and language for learning outcomes.
-Use the knowledge practices and dispositions of the Framework to develop learning outcomes.
Connect with partners in the library and in the greater campus community
-Identify potential partnerships within and beyond the library that will maximize the impact of your learning experiences.
-Examine areas of expertise throughout your campus community that will inform the content of your learning experiences.
-Become conversant about the intersections and increase confidence in your ability to engage stakeholders in related discussions.
