The ABC’s of Building Information Partnerships: Factors for Success in Building Active and Engaged Partnerships. The new issue of MLA Forum (the journal of the Michigan Library Association) is now up. I am highlighting this article as I think it has a lot of implications for library instruction and information literacy. It was written by Deborah H. Charbonneau and Carrie Croatt-Moore.
Also, my The Ideal Academic Library as Envisioned through Nietzsche’s Vision of the Eternal Return paper is also available in this issue. I guess I can put it on my c.v. now.
From the abstract of the article:
Building strong information partnerships is an essential first step to effective information literacy programs and services. The overall goal of this paper is to highlight several factors that are especially useful for establishing productive relationships with a range of potential partners including students, faculty, and other campus or community partners. Five key factors for success will be discussed to help guide the development of active and engaged partnerships.
