In response to the challenge of limited resources in higher education, libraries continue to reinvent and innovate quality service and meaningful instruction. Does your library instruction program need a makeover to meet new demands at your institution? The CARLI Instruction Committee wants to help.

In keeping with this year’s theme “Evolving Library Instruction: Negotiating Change in Uncertain Times”, we are offering another webinar from a librarian in the region who is taking bold steps into a new world. Please join us for the “Librarian Transformation: Teaching Disciplinary Courses” webinar, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CST on Thursday, March 9. The presenter will be Amy Van Epps, Engineering Information Specialist and Associate Professor of Library Science at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. An overview of the webinar’s content is below.

At Purdue University, subject librarians are tenure-track faculty who are expected to connect with disciplinary faculty to support teaching and learning. In recent years, several librarians at Purdue have been invited to teach existing disciplinary courses, or have worked with disciplinary faculty to create and teach new classes that fill needs at the university. In this webinar, Amy Van Epps will discuss her opportunities to teach disciplinary classes, and share insights on how traditional librarian roles can be leveraged to create teaching experiences beyond the IL guest lecture.

To register, go here. This webinar will be recorded and available on the CARLI website for later viewing. Please send any questions to support@carli.illinios.edu.
