Several Illinois librarians have articles featured in the ALA Library Instruction Roundtable Top Twenty Articles for 2016. Every year, the American Library Association’s LIRT Top Twenty Committee reviews the library instruction literature from the previous year and identifies the 20 best instruction articles for that year. Sue Franzen of Illinois State University was recognized for her article “Merging Information Literacy and Evidence-Based Practice in an Undergraduate Health Science Curriculum Map” (co-authored with Colleen Bannon). The article appeared in the Communications in Information Literacy journal. Paula Dempsey (University of Illinois at Chicago) and Heather Jagman (DePaul University) also made the list, for their article “‘I Felt Like Such a Freshman’: First-Year Students Crossing the Library Threshold”, which appeared in portal: Libraries and the Academy. Additionally, Steve Brantley (Eastern Illinois University) served on this year’s Top Twenty Committee.
