Getting the Most out of Academic Libraries and Librarians

Occidental College Librarian, Bob Kieft, is quoted in a Chronicle of Higher Education Lingua Franca blog post, "Getting the Most out of Academic Libraries-and Librarians" about the frustrations librarians have in their efforts to make connections with faculty and students.  (October 26, 2011)

Bob makes the point that the focus should be less on who has what knowledge, and more on how that knowledge can best assist or guide students in their work. "We need to partner with faculty so that the concerns for information literacy education and librarians' knowledge of student work practices will inform the design of assignments and even courses."
