Leading Information Literacy Programs: Immersion and Beyond: Elizabeth Blakesley Lindsay, Sara Baron

Professional development for instruction librarians was greatly enhanced in 1999 with the launch of the Association of College and Research Libraries’ Institute for Information Literacy Immersion program. Several hundred librarians have been selected to participate in this intensive program that combines national expertise in the fields of library instruction, assessment, and information literacy. Participants return to their institutions with different strengths, skills and possibilities to incorporate new ideas about information literacy into their programs.
