Availability: Ready to download

Traditionally, academic librarians have delivered “beck and call” service to educators both in and out of the classroom.

However, far from being merely auxiliary to the learning cycle, academic librarians are educators in their own right. If the primary challenge before them is to change how they’re perceived within their institutions, Reale proposes, the key lies in becoming a proactive teacher and collaborator. Offering strategies applicable to many different areas, this book shows how the academic librarian can be an educator in both structured and unstructured spaces on campuses. Blending practice-based evidence with a warm approach, Reale - discusses the changing perception of academic librarians, how they are seen and how they see themselves; - shows how academic librarians can and should assert their rightful place in the learning cycle; - looks at how to match teaching goals with academic librarians’ mission; - advocates for the indispensable roles the academic librarian should play, including co-collaborator, one-on-one research consultant, expert-at-large in non-structured spaces such as the dorm or student lounge, and embedded librarian in the classroom; - offers talking points for self-advocacy, looking at the many ways academic librarians are making a difference; and - explores activities and programming for engagement and learning. This book will empower and validate academic librarians by demonstrating their indispensable roles as educators.

    This book is so, so good. “We do not, as a group, define our own identity. It is often defined by others, and perhaps therein lies the problem” (6). “Reject limitations imposed on the profession, whether inside or outside of the library. These stereotypes are powerful, persistent, and ultimately harmful—don’t buy into them” (10). “Relationships are extremely important. Optimize any opportunity to develop them with faculty and others.

It is often defined by others, and perhaps therein lies the problem” (6). “Reject limitations imposed on the profession, whether inside or outside of the library. These stereotypes are powerful, persistent, and ultimately harmful—don’t buy into them” (10). “Relationships are extremely important. Optimize any opportunity to develop them with faculty and others. Placing ourselves among and beside faculty in the classroom and other settings on campus is paramount” (10). “Agreeing to the faculty’s demands for poorly thought-out classes is exactly opposite to the kind of collaboration that students benefit from and that we want to facilitate….It is only when we stand firm in our own mandate and assert ourselves as the professionals we are that the roots of collaboration can begin to take hold” (49).

    1) Librarianship primer 2) Practical 3) Concise Enjoyment: 3 The middle chapters are the strongest sections in this book where the role of instruction and relationships are discussed. More investigation into the relationship between librarians and faculty would enhance learning. Still, Reale offers experience, wisdom, motivation, and insightful strategies.
