Many Libraries have realized that they cannot provide all the instruction services themselves. Therefore, they look for partners offering complementary services such as Writing Center, Tutoring, and Information Technology units.
Collaboration between the libraries and the Information technology departments will be highlighted. Challenges facing each unit, as well as challenges they share, will be discussed. Recommendations, suggestions and solutions will be provided.
Focus will be mainly on possible collaborative relationships between librarians and information technologists in supporting student learning, instructional designs and use of technology. Examples of collaborations such as: Integration of Librarian & Information Literacy in Course Management System. Applications at AUB (if any). Importance of this collaboration as well as challenges, hinders and recommendation.
