News & Events

This past March, Michael Kahn, Assistant  Professor, Information Literacy and Chair, LIB100 Curriculum Committee, with  the encouragement of the Library Director, Brook Stowe, represented ASA College  as a presenter at the American Library Association’s biannual Association for  College and Research Libraries 2015 Conference (ACRL 2015).

Professor Kahn presented as part of a  panel with John T. Oliver of The College of New Jersey, Nancy Wooten Colborn of  Indiana University, South Bend, and Julie Harding of the University of  Maryland. The presentation was titled, Reaching Every Student: Laying  Foundations with Mandatory Information Literacy Courses. While information  literacy has achieved international recognition as a vital skill college  students must have, very few colleges offer full stand-alone credit-bearing  courses in information literacy the way ASA does.

Professor Kahn’s presentation was well  received with librarians from other two-year colleges. Following the panel, a  number of attendees from two-year institutions approached Michael to ask how  they could adopt information literacy instruction programs similar to what is  at ASA.

Over 150 library personnel attended the  panel, tweeting highly positive comments in response to what they heard.

By presenting at ACRL 2015, a conference  with 4,000 librarians from 25 countries in attendance, Professor Kahn was able  to showcase on a national stage the special role ASA plays in providing  cutting-edge information literacy instruction, a stage where ASA indeed  belongs!

This can take place once a year or more often if the mask model is changed. How the...
