Brookens Library created the Faculty Library Associate Program for faculty members interested in integrating information literacy, library services, and Library resources into a new or existing course. The purpose of the program is to create intensive collaboration between faculty and the library, to illustrate the effectiveness of this type of collaboration in improving student outcomes (specifically the UIS Goals and Learning Outcomes for Baccalaureate Education), to develop instructional materials and activities to share with other librarians and faculty, and to advance the use of library services on campus. We are seeking Associates for the 2021 summer semester.
Please see the Instructional Services page on the Faculty Resource guide for additional information and examples of course-integrated information literacy assignments if that is your area of interest.
