Seminar Goal: To help participants identify techniques and tools that will enable academic librarians, faculty members, information technologists, instructional design professionals, et al. to discover or develop and implement new approaches to collaboration among these groups to achieve maximum integration of the library into the teaching and learning process throughout their institutions.

The seminar will bring a new perspective on information literacy and collaboration through a conceptual framework the workshop leaders refer to as "Blended Librarianship."
