Teaching resources from LIRT

Monday, September 28, 2009

At this year’s ALA conference in Chicago, The Library Instruction Round Table gave a program entitled “Preparing yourself to teach: touching all the bases.” As part of this presentation, the LIRT Research Committee compiled a bibliography of articles on teaching information literacy. Hoping that COIL members will find helpful and enlightening, I’m posting the bibliography (with permission of the LIRT Research Committee):
