Abstract:

Most instruction librarians learn how to teach by experience. Granted, some have taken a course on bibliographic instruction or courses that include a few sessions on bibliographic instruction or even a practicum on instruction while working on their MLS degrees. Some even have backgrounds in education and formal teaching experience. However, most instruction librarians fin themselves teaching without the benefit of formal education on effective teaching practices. As a result, they continually seek to hone their skills to become better, more effective teachers.

Once instruction librarians have mastered teaching, they soon find themselves managing an instruction program. They become responsible for planning and implementing a instruction program, supervising and mentoring other instruction librarians, and working to convince faculty and administrators outside the library of the necessity of integrating information literacy into all aspects of the curriculum. As with teaching, only a few have backgrounds in management. Most subsequently manage by trial and error. This LOEX conference gives instruction librarians an opportunity to learn how to manage better---based on the experience of others.

Leading off the conference is Mary Jane Petrowski, Senior Associate Executive Director for the Association of College & Research Libraries. Her presentation covers developing a "management repertoire."

Linda Dobb, Executive Vice President at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in Ohio, former Dean of BGSU's Library, is the featured speaker. Her insights and observations provide readers with a glimpse at how many in upper administration view library instruction and information literacy, and presents suggestions on how to integrate the goals of a library's information literacy program with the goals and priorities of the university as a whole.

Issues covered in breakout sessions range from staff scheduling and workload to project management, and from collaborating with faculty to devising staff development programs.

The papers included in these proceedings give an excellent overview of problems library instruction managers face and examples of how others in the field have successfully responded to them.
