Format: Paperback
"Academic Librarianship By Design: A Blended Librarian's Guide to The Tools And Techniques" is ably and informatively co-authored by Steven J. Bell (Associate University Librarians for Research and Instructional Services at Temple University) and John D. Shank (Instructional Design Librarian and Director of the Center for Learning Technologies for Pennsylvania State University's Berks Campus). Designed specifically for library staff members working in an academic setting, "Academic Librarianship By Design" features the authors' modified 'ADDIE Model' in improving librarian collaboration with faculty, researchers, and students in becoming an instructional partner; connecting with learners through applying design thinking to develop and enhance library services; provide effective and innovative tools for sahring information literacy and research process insights; and carry out a leadership level responsibility with respect to integrating the academic library and librarian into the teaching and learning process. "Academic Librarianship By Design" utilizes scenarios, case studies, and profiles to illustrate the successes that 'blended librarians' are having on academic campuses. Practical, applicable, and 'user friendly', "Academic Librarianship By Design" is especially recommended to the attention of academic librarians at all educational levels as an instruction manual, a reference on information literacy, and as a key addition to university level Library Science curriculums for library and information science students.
