Abstract (up to 200 words):
The information needs of distance education students and faculty have transformed the way libraries provide resources and services to not just the distance education community but also all library users. The advent of new technologies in higher education, particularly distance education, has reinforced the development of information literacy skills. These skills can only be achieved through collaboration between teaching faculty and librarians. In an effort to address these needs, Joyner Library at East Carolina University is: 1.Assessing how we acquire new resources 2.Implementing technologies that will streamline access to resources and services to make library research more efficient and effective 3.Working with teaching faculty to integrate information literacy skills at the course level. This presentation will draw from current practices and illustrate future directions for improving collaboration across the curriculum and graduate information literate students.
