Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Collaboration at the postsecondary level can be challenging. McAdoo, instruction and electronic resource librarian at Edinboro University in Pennsylvania, explains the rationale and strategies for collaboration between university academic faculty and librarians. His 2009 article on bridge building in American Libraries serves as a “tickler” to this book. The main premise, outlined in part 1, is that college assignments need to be well crafted, ideally as a result of teacher-librarian collaboration, in order to help college students become information literate. Part 2 of the book frames collaboration in terms of assignment transactions and problems, suggesting how to contact the “erring” faculty member. Part 3 explains the do’s and don’ts of essays, term papers, citations, and technology-integrated assignments and provides alternatives to tours and scavenger-hunt orientations. Appendixes list information literacy and bibliographic instruction historical benchmarks. A short bibliography and an index complete the volume. This book provides some practical pointers, although it does not cover the full gamut of collaboration options. --Lesley Farmer
