Constructive partnerships between academic librarians and faculty play a crucial role in effectively assessing and improving information literacy efforts. Collaboration is not just a nice idea: it is essential to improving the value of library services, personnel, and instruction. Here, highly respected editors Thomas P. Mackey and Trudi E. Jacobson explore innovative collaborative assessment strategies designed specifically for information literacy programmes and courses. All of the contributions to the book are co-written by faculty-librarian teams that have successfully worked together to develop assessment strategies across a wide range of disciplines, including business, political science, education, adult learning programmes, and the humanities. Chapters cover the following key areas: a holistic approach to embedding information literacy in an undergraduate business programme: assessing integrated library components to enhance information literacy: assessing undergraduate information literacy skills - how collaborative curriculum interventions promote active and independent learning: designing an online assessment strategy for adult learners: a model for information literacy self-assessment - enhancing student learning in writing courses through collaborative teaching: assessing thematic writing courses: and, measuring student success through partnerships in the core curriculum. Saving you countless hours on course or accreditation preparation, each chapter includes a detailed literature review, a model for practical implementation, a discussion of the partnership process, and an examination of assessment data. The teams also share guidance for overcoming a variety of collaborative obstacles and challenges, and report on how their assessment process significantly improved student learning outcomes. Framed in a practical real-world context, this invaluable new resource provides a clear set of best practices to help librarians and faculty work together to initiate new information literacy assessment efforts or to improve established programmes in their own institutions.
