Scaffolding Student Learning in Nursing

Information literacy instruction in Nursing at UW-Eau Claire was typically done within the "one-shot" framework. By utilizing the lesson study methodology, 3 librarians and 3 nursing professors from UW-Eau Claire collaborated to create an integrated instructional program within the nursing program that focused on information literacy and evidence based practice skills in the sophomore, junior, and senior years.

We will discuss what lesson study is and present results (pre & post intervention) of the longitudinal study that used the lesson study methodology and discuss ways in which this pedagogical method can be used in other disciplines.

SESSION CANCELLED: Bridge Over Troubled Waters: Designing curriculum to promote IL standards for First-Year college students
Sara Gold,
Theresa Beaulieu,
Ted Mulvey,

According to the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), “Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of education. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning.”The ACRL has identified five standards along with indicators and outcomes used to determine the information literacy of students, and yet librarians continue to report significant deficiencies in the information literacy skills of incoming college freshman. Join us for a panel discussion of librarians from UW-Milwaukee, UW- Oshkosh and Wisconsin High Schools to identify and address information literacy deficiencies in students through well-designed curriculum that engages and educates.

 DIY Book Scanner Project Management

Holly Storck-Post, UW-Madison, SLIS

UW-Madison, SLIS

Come learn how six SLIS students built a DIY book scanner for their library! This presentation will cover construction (using a basic kit from, as well as SLIS-specific modifications), spray paint finishes, camera hacking software, and more. Throughout the course of their semester, the students kept a detailed blog with progress updates (and frustrations) that can be used as a learning guide for future projects at your own library. The presenters will share experiences and advice, and they will demonstrate how to use the book scanner. Afterwards, there will be a Q&A session.
