Coffee Card

Library instruction is always most effective when librarians and faculty collaborate. When we have a better idea of the assignments given to your students, we can tailor our sessions to the skills they need most and deliver them at the appropriate moment. Familiarity with the course learning outcomes enables us to suggest the best pairing of information literacy components.

Let's have those conversations! We'll even buy you coffee (it's in the library's budget!).

Just shoot your liaison an email and we'll find a time to discuss your upcoming class.

This is a diagram of a percolator used as an analogy for how we would like librarians and faculty to work together. The 'water' stands in for librarians and faculty, which passes under pressure through the process of planning library instruction collaboratively. In the diagram this is represented by the coffee grounds. This process results in an incontestable good, coffee, which represents better student research. The library maintains a coffee budget to provide for such meetings.
