*Privacy, Consent, and the Virtual One-Shot – ACRLog (the current academic library situation)

Nora researches and writes about critical pedagogy, social justice, neoliberalism, performance, and place. You can find her on twitter: @nora_almeida. In April 2020, when the City University of New York (CUNY) shifted classes and student services online, the one-shot library instruction sessions mostly stopped all together. I sent out a few emails during the early days of the COVID-19 lock down in NYC as I deleted most of the now obsolete notations in my calendar while doom-scrolling and listening to perpetual ambulance sirens. But everyone’s semester had been thrown so wildly off-course and midterms had already ended and the consensus seemed to be to try to get through the semester and then reset for fall. Certainly, the videos could be reused later, without my consent or when the information they contain is out of date.

Reclaiming Reference (Sari Feldman)

The Ramapo Catskill Library System in New York provided bookmobile service to my small town, so I at least had access to recreational reading, but it was limited. When my sister, Myrna, learned to drive, my parents joined the Ellenville Public Library, and every other week we’d check out the maximum number of books to feed our voracious reading appetites. Growing up, libraries for me were almost exclusively places where I could find books I wanted to read. Years later, living in Madison, Wis., I came to appreciate the broader value of public library service. Using my neighborhood library branch, I found answers to questions about everything from my new community to what to read next and which brand of coffee maker to purchase. As a book lover in library school, professor Margaret Monroe’s visionary work “Reader’s Services in the Context of the Public Library” spoke to the heart of what brought me to librarianship: a love of reading.

A little help from our academic friends: Five fine portals for instructional fodder

How about a few fresh strategies for energizing your information literacy instruction and preparing your secondary learners for their academic experience? A number of portals offer training and instruction for our students as well as a little retooling for us as professionals, all aligned with the ACRL (Association of College & Research Libraries) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, which, of course, resonate with our own AASL National School Library Standards. Here’s a little round-up of the portals designed to support critical information skills. 1. Project CORA: I first met CORA, the Community of Online Research Assignments, back in 2016 and immediately considered her a welcome friend.

Rubrics - RAILS

The RAILS project is intended to help librarians create and use rubrics for information literacy assessment. To this end, RAILS serves as clearinghouse for information literacy rubrics. Existing RAILS rubrics are grouped by topic and/or by creator and accessible using the navigation links on the right. Any of these rubrics can be modified and saved by librarians; librarians can also upload new rubrics. To do so, librarians should click the "participant login" link at the top of this page for site approval. Database "Speed Dating" Short Description: This activity introduces students to a variety of databases in their discipline by asking them to quickly review and prepare an “elevator speech” on the database’s best features and content.

Students then do three rounds of “speed dating” to share with other students what they’ve discovered.

The Mindful Instruction Librarian and the "One-Shot" Wayfinding the Web: Applying Critical Information Literacy to a Google Instruction Session. Fake news and information credibility became hot topics in late 2016. However, even before the U.S. presidential election cycle, librarians at the Yale Center for Science and Social Science Information (CSSSI) started to adapt Google workshops to address the changing online credibility environment.

We have taught workshops on effective Google searching since 2012, developing the series because we observed that many researchers in the sciences and social sciences “satisficed” their information and research inquiries using Google and Google Scholar. The workshops meet students, faculty, and staff at their points of need and acknowledge that Google and Google Scholar are part of their research toolkits.

In addition to 30-minute workshops targeted at undergraduates, we also teach 60- or 90-minute sessions on Google Scholar and My Citations, Google Images, Google News, and other Google products.

LMS Embedded Librarianship LMS embedded librarians are engaged in student learning according to the Ithaka S+R US Library Survey 2013. They confer with faculty members to discover what their learning outcomes are and what their research assignments entail. After considering what students will have to know and do as researchers, the librarian identifies which subject databases are most appropriate.

Academic libraries will license and sometimes buy hundreds of these subject databases. In addition to this proprietary content, LMS embedded librarians guide students to open-access content and open educational resources freely available online. The LMS embedded librarian might work in the following manner. Digital Collections Embedded librarians have many choices when it comes to directing students to scholarly digital collections within their LMS courses.
