Think your library instruction program may need to change in response to changes at your institution? The CARLI Instruction Committee wants to help!

Our theme for this year is “Evolving Library Instruction: Negotiating Change in Uncertain Times”. Because of current trends and challenges in higher education, libraries are changing the way they do things, so that they can continue to provide quality service and meaningful instruction with different or fewer resources. We are planning a series of free webinars from librarians in the region who are taking bold steps into a new world.

We’ll kick off the year with “Scaling Up: Rebuilding An Instruction Program With Limited Resources”. The webinar will take place on Wednesday, December 7, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CST. To register, click here. A brief description is below.

National Louis University’s Library & Learning Support (LLS) unit has experienced significant changes over the past few years. Shifting trends in higher education, new university programs, a department reorganization, and university-wide resizing all continue to impact a variety of library services. In this webinar, NLU librarians discuss their plan to rebuild their instruction program, focusing on targeted outreach efforts and curriculum-embedded information literacy instruction that allows LLS to maximize student impact, even in a time of limited resources.
