PRIMO Site of the Month: Scholarship Is a Conversation

The PRIMO Site of the Month for April 2017 is Scholarship Is a Conversation, produced by Julie Hartwell, Geoff Iverson, Sara Kearns, Kate Otto, Ashley Stark, and Rachel Vukas (New Literacies Alliance). "The New Literacies Alliance is an inter-institutional consortium of academic libraries aimed at building ACRL Framework-based online information literacy lessons. The lessons can be embedded in websites and LibGuides, synced with most learning management systems, or hosted in the cloud for students to review. All lessons are institution-, vendor-, and technology-agnostic—meaning that they can be used by any institution. The lessons are also licensed through Creative Commons, so individual branding and other modifications can be made. This lesson is mapped to the Scholarship as Conversation Frame and introduces the concept of scholarly conversations developing over time, and how to follow a scholarly conversation." The resource itself is at and the interview with the authors is at
