Profiles of Academic Library Efforts to Develop Information Literacy Tutorials

  • ID: 4852793
  • Report
  • 58 Pages
  • Primary Research Group
1 of 5

The study depicts the efforts of 4 university libraries - Georgetown University Law School Library, Yale University’s Cushing/Whitney Medical Library, Arizona State University Library and Florida State University Libraries.

Each highly-detailed profile portrays how the library plans for, choose, develops, implements, markets and evaluates their information literacy tutorials, focusing on tools used, strategies deployed, and lessons learned.  Each participant gives their advice on how to develop tutorials, helping to answer questions such as:  What are the library’s most frequently used tutorials? How does the library determine when to develop a tutorial? When does the library develop its own and when does it turn to other sources?  How are tutorial design objectives adjusted to meet the needs of various schools and programs?  To what extent can resources and strategies be shared among many libraries on a major university campus and what are the rewards – and pitfalls – of doing so? What programs are used for voice over, storyline development, testing, and distribution? How can tutorials serve the needs of international students, distance learning students and other groups that may have specialized needs? What means are used to assure that tutorials are compliant with the American Disabilities Act standards?  How are tutorials evaluated and what changes can result when they are?

The 58-page report was written by Anamika Megwalu, Ph.D., M.L.I.S.  Anamika is an Assessment and Engineering Librarian at San Jose State University.
