College Writing 1 Information Literacy Toolkit

Framework for Implementation

CW1 + Librarian Partnership
  • Each CW1 section is assigned a Librarian.

  • This partnership works best when the instructor and librarian work closely over the course of the semester and meet to discuss roles, expectations, and learning outcomes for the semester. 

  • The Librarian visits the class several times throughout the semester. It is recommended that the Librarian visit at least three times (see Assessment Evidence).
