As librarians know, working with limited budgets may be difficult, but finding outside funding is oftentimes near impossible. Despite the associated challenges, some librarians are trying the road less traveled and, doing what they do best, are seeking to learn from those who have successfully found funding and willing faculty partners. This session is for those librarians who are seeking best practices as well as those with best practices to share.
Morgan State University is the recipient of a Title III, Part B SAFRA grant sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education. The grant, which has an overall goal to strengthen historically black colleges and universities, is facilitating the creation of a formal and sustainable cross-campus information literacy program. As a part of this program, Morgan State began a partnership with Credo to extend limited time and library resources while working towards this goal.
This session introduces the partnership between Morgan State University and Credo as it relates to the Title III grant, covering best practices gleaned from the projects, videos and tutorials created as a result of this partnership. From typical instructional videos like “What is Information Literacy” and “How to Find Online Resources” to more subject-specific collaborative projects including Women’s Health and Gender faculty or the Education Doctoral program, no subject is off limits when it comes to Morgan State University’s information literacy efforts.
