Papers from the ACRL conference: lots of information literacy!

Well worth browsing the papers (full text) from the (US) Association of Collegeand Research Libraries (ACRL) conference 2013 held just over a week ago.
Just to pick out a few of them:
- Bodemer, B. They Not Only CAN But They SHOULD: Why Undergraduates Should Provide Basic IL Instruction. This starts with a rationale for peer teaching and then gives an example from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, where "LibRATS" (Library Reference Assistance Technicians) have running training sessions for their peers for several years: evaluations of the sessions are included.
- Leibiger, C. and Aldrich, A. The Mother of all LibGuides”: Applying Principles of Communication and Network Theory in LibGuide Design
- Monroe-Gulick, A., O’Brien, M. and White, G. Librarians as Partners: Moving from Research Supporters to Research Partners
