Abstract:

"Explores possibilities for college library instruction and writing program partnerships from a variety of vantage points, including empirical on student writing and information literacy development, policies and standards, interviews with librarian-compositionist partners, cultural and structural contexts that influence librarians' and writing instructors' work environments, and reflexive pedagogical praxis"--

"Since library instruction's very beginnings librarians and writing instructors have been natural partners. Library-writing program connections illustrate that both writing and information seeking and use (information literacy) share powerful links: both are central to posing and exploring problems and questions and to seeking informed and creative approaches to them. Despite these intersections, however, there is still a strong tendency for English composition and library instruction to be taught in relative separation, with the latter frequently being viewed as a course "add-on." Similarly, conversations about writing and information literacy pedagogy have tended to exist in professional silos. Fortunately, dialogue across our professions has begun to expand at what appears an unprecedented pace, as librarians become increasingly vocal about the need for information literacy to be an integral part of college education and as librarians expand their engagement with learning theories and conceptual frameworks for information literacy. This book is intended to help widen and deepen the conversations between librarians and compositionists, through an exploration of: empirical research on student writing and information literacy development; intersections between and pedagogical implications of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and the WPA Framework for success in Postsecondary Writing; interviews with librarian-compositionists partners about their collaborative experiences; historical, social, cultural, and structural contexts that influence librarians and writings instructors' work environments and cultures, and ultimately the potential for partnership; and the power of reflective pedagogical praxis."--Provided by publisher.
