Library and Faculty collaboration is key to the university’s learning and research process. So how can library teams take the initiative to activate this process? This presentation shows the AUI model.
Today, it is understood that information literacy efforts cannot succeed without serious collaboration between faculty and librarians – yet collaboration can be both an opportunity and a challenge for libraries and university communities. Mohammed VI Library at Al Akhawayn University recognizes the need and importance of this collaboration, and so its librarians have developed a strategy to highlight and provide easy access to all library resources available for AUI faculty members and students, and to promote information literacy skills. This abstract will describe the strategy’s three current initiatives, namely (a) faculty outreach, (b) course guide initiatives, and (c) information literacy instruction sessions.
