Becoming Leaders, Creating Leaders: Developing an Information Literacy Ambassador Program

Librarians at a medium-sized university proposed information literacy as the topic for a campus-wide initiative, the Quality Enhancement Plan--a forward looking project focused on student success. When their proposal was accepted, librarians found themselves in a novel position, not just reacting to campus developments, but driving them. While the plan endeavored to train faculty to be information literacy leaders, librarians also had to take on new leadership roles. Presenters will discuss how they built upon skills developed as instruction librarians to meet this challenge and provide guidance for librarians stepping into leadership roles for the first time.

Participants will:
  • Identify opportunities to serve as leaders on their own campus in order to advocate for information literacy to students, faculty, and administrators.
  • Reflect on their skills and dispositions in order to grow as leaders.
  • Adapt learning activities in order to create professional development opportunities for faculty on their campus.
