Information Retrieval and Reference Services
The teacher librarian learns to model and teach information skills, including location, retrieval, and evaluation of learning resources, as well as critical thinking. This course presents a 21st-century search procedure that systematically and thoroughly integrates print, nonprint, and electronic forms of information. The reference interview is emphasized as a vehicle for demonstrating to faculty and students both a sensitivity to diversity and client-centered care. The teacher librarian is expected to integrate information literacy instruction with all curricular disciplines. The course includes advanced online search techniques.
