Shifting Frames: Creative Collaborations at the Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy

Mildred Livak Room

Building on the framework presented in the ACRL Whitepaper “Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy”, librarians in different roles at Dartmouth have forged connections among the experiential learning and scholarly communication conversations campus-wide. This is most evident in programs that include new ways of teaching copyright, outreach around the Dartmouth Faculty Open Access Policy, and an Experiential Learning Initiative grant which furthers our work with students involved in different kinds of publishing activities. Through these programs, the Library is integrated into the key goals of the institution to forward teaching, learning, scholarship, and research. Learn how we built bridges across seemingly disparate Library and campus institutional units with compelling programs that involve key stakeholders. We will briefly discuss a few of these programs, including our successes and setbacks. After each program is described, we’ll engage the audience members in a discussion of what is happening or what might happen in their institutions in that area. The participants will share ideas with each other for applying the lessons learned to their own situations, and start developing their own creative collaborations. We’ll wind up the session with discussion and feedback on these ideas. Through examples, stories, conversations, and brainstorms, this interactive session will inspire audience members to start or forward their own creative collaborations around information literacy and scholarly communication, no matter what their role in their institutions.
