Business and Communications Librarian Brigham Young University Provo, Utah
The shift from academic learning to experiential learning provides new opportunities for libraries to integrate information literacy in the curriculum. At the same time, libraries are becoming more active participants in scholarly communications. These two trends now intersect at Brigham Young University's Marriott School of Business. Hear from a librarian how the library has embedded information literacy in the business communications program by helping to author and publish the program's open textbook (http://mcom320.net/). And hear from two undergraduate students how they are benefiting from the experience of becoming publishers and producing a student journal (https://scholarsarchive.byu.edu/marriottstudentreview/) and podcast (https://measuringsuccessright.com/). Come away with ideas how your library can take its partnerships with students and faculty beyond traditional outreach and library instruction, toward library participation in student experiential learning and scholarly communications.
participate more fully in the student experiential learning that increasingly dominates university programs.
propose partnerships that integrate information literacy more deeply in the curriculum.
