Description-

  • The sheer amount of resources on the subject of information literacy is staggering. Yet a comprehensive but concise roadmap specifically for librarians who are new to instruction, or who are charged with training someone who is, has remained elusive. Until now. This book cuts through the jargon and rhetoric to ease the transition into library instruction, offering support to all those involved, including library supervisors, colleagues, and trainees. Grounded in research on teaching and learning from numerous disciplines, not just library literature, this book shows how to set up new instruction librarians for success, with advice on completing an environmental scan, strategies for recruiting efficiently, and a training checklist; walks readers step by step through training a new hire or someone new to instruction, complete with hands-on activities and examples; explores the different roles an instruction librarian is usually expected to play, such as educator, project manager, instructional designer, and teaching partner; demonstrates the importance of performance evaluation and management, including assessment and continuing education, both formal and informal; and provides guided reading lists for further in-depth study of a topic. A starter kit for librarians new to instruction, this resource will be useful for training coordinators as well as for self-training.

    Benjes-Small (Radford Univ., VA) and Miller (Pennsylvania State Univ.) correctly note there are many great books introducing information literacy instruction to librarians. What has been lacking, however, is an introduction for librarians who are new to instruction. In addition, many librarians find their initial teaching experience is "trial by fire" rather than a structured training program. With that in mind, the authors have written a solid overview of academic instruction librarianship for both supervisors and novices. Supervisors will find content related to recruitment, orientation, and providing continuing support. The authors outline the many roles librarians will be expected to play: instructional designer, teaching partner, advocate, and learner. Included are expert voices, activities, and reading suggestions, as well as a section dedicated to templates and activities for both audiences. VERDICT New instruction librarians, particularly recent graduates, will likely find the chapters related to roles to be helpful in understanding expectations in their new workplace. Even experienced managers should find this work to be helpful in thinking about how to welcome librarians into their instruction programs.--Amanda Folk, Ohio State Univ. Libs.
