As online learning becomes increasingly popular and widespread, librarians and faculty need new models for developing information literacy instruction in online environments. In this new book, respected authors Thomas P. Mackey and Trudi E. Jacobson explore innovative faculty-librarian partnerships for teaching information literacy online.
All of the contributions to this edited volume are co-written by faculty-librarian teams, providing a global perspective from the UK's Open University and the University of Manchester, and from a number of US institutions including the University of Central Florida and Indiana State University. Each chapter fuses pedagogical, disciplinary and technological issues, and covers practical approaches to hybrid, blended, open and fully online courses and programs. A number of disciplines are represented at undergraduate and graduate levels, including Business and Accounting, Computer and Library Science, History, English, Women's Studies, Education and Social Work, as well as Curriculum Instruction and Media Studies.
To help readers replicate the models in this book, each chapter has an emphasis on program planning, best practices, potential challenges and effective assessment strategies for improving student learning. Author teams describe technology innovations using reusable learning objects, Web 2.0 tools, learning management systems, open wiki environments, online portals and the virtual world of Second Life.
Through a combination of research and valuable real-life success stories, this cutting-edge new resource will help faculty and librarians foster effective collaborations and provide students with positive online learning experiences.
Readership: Any librarian involved in teaching information literacy and LIS students, researchers and academics.

"Mackey and Jacobson have assembled a veritable bible on how to do it right by providing eight original models of IL best practices and successful online implementations." -- Library Journal
"Well written, the insights this book provides will stimulate educators and information literacy practitioners, perhaps leading them to reassess how they currently support research and teaching, and reinforce for them some of the key issues and challenges they are facing in terms of collaborative partnerships for online education. It will also resonate with those practitioners involved in flexible and innovative approaches to teaching information literacy, will generate fresh ideas, and might encourage information literacy educators to harness the opportunities and possibilities provided by an array of new technologies." -- Journal of Information Literacy
"The genuine collaborations between faculty and librarians described in each chapter are inspirational, as are the range of online courses that are described. As someone who believed they knew a reasonable amount about this topic, I found much new in this book. The further reading at the end of each chapter was impressive and has led to me exploring numerous avenues." -- Program
