Delivering Information Literacy Instruction for a Joint International Program: An Innovative Collaboration Between Two Libraries

WithJiselle Maria Alleyne, Denyse Rodrigues

International partnerships are becoming prevalent in tertiary education. Agreements and memorandums of understanding are often reached at the

higher administrative levels, filling the gaps in program offerings, and increasing enrollment in both institutions (Marshall et al. 2008). Students in these joint programs are often eligible for library services at both institutions. However, the literature is surprisingly sparse on the relationships within the libraries of institutions involved in these agreements, or on the access of students enrolled in joint programs to the library of the remote institution (Pival and Johnson 2004). This article presents an example of cooperation between Bermuda College and Mount Saint Vincent University in providing library instruction for students enrolled in joint programs at their institutions.
