New articles: annual review of information literacy literature; marketing training workshops
- Library instruction and information literacy 2016: Latisha Reynolds, Amber Willenborg, Samantha McClellan, Rosalinda Hernandez Linares, Elizabeth Alison Sterner (pp. 596 - 702).
523 items are listed "The majority, (370) were oriented toward academic libraries. Additional category totals include 4 Legal, 45 Medical, 46 Other, 6 Public and 52 School related publications" The list does have a bias towards North American material, not including papers from the volume of ECIL conference proceedings, as far as I can see (although, the literature generally is dominated by North American academic librarians, so it partly just reflects that). Popular topics include the ARCL Framework for IL, collaboration with faculty and teaching online.
Other articles in the issue which caught my attention
- Creating a sustainable graduate student workshop series: Bettina Peacemaker, Martha Roseberry (pp. 562 - 574) [good for practical insights into running training sessions - they are still doing this and their "Advance your research" site at http://guides.library.vcu.edu/ayr/ provides examples of what they do.
- 8 Years of institutional assessment feedback: students’ satisfaction with library services: Monica D.T. Rysavy, Russell Michalak, Alison Wessel (pp. 544 - 561) [the satisfaction questionnaire included at least one question related to infolit]
