Expanding Library Instruction to the Web Portal

Expanding Library Instruction to the Web Portal. This essay is by Christopher V. Hollister and Hugh W. Jarvis of the University of Buffalo. It was published in the Summer 2005 (Volume 9, Issue 2) issue of Academic Exchange Quarterly.

From the site:

Teaching information literacy skills is a major initiative for today’s instruction librarians. The advent of web portals on the college campus provides a unique teaching opportunity. This paper describes how the University at Buffalo Libraries and the University’s Office of Creative Services collaborate to offer My Library, which is a channel built into MyUB, the University’s web portal. My Library provides a new opportunity for instruction that addresses the needs, expectations, and changing learning styles of today’s technology savvy students.
