LAUNC-CH presentation

I will give a presentation next Monday, March 7 at the Librarians Association of The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill  (LAUNC-CH) Annual Conference, Service Learning:  Keeping the library engaged in the curriculum and the community.  The presentation description is: Librarians are uniquely positioned to support faculty members as they create service learning courses to engage students with curriculum and forge vital community partnerships. Using projects implemented at Wright State University as a starting point, the presenter and participants will explore the connections between librarians, information literacy, and service learning and how these relationships directly impact the community. Projects include incor-porating service learning into an undergraduate for-credit informa-tion literacy course and collaborating with faculty to link research assignments to service work in a composition course. Participants will investigate this emerging role for librarians and learn practical strategies for contributing to service learning curriculum on their own campuses. Presentation available here.
