Planning library instruction to help disciplinary departments meet accreditation is a strong way for academic libraries to demonstrate value. During 2012 the Liaison Librarians at Grand Valley State University undertook a new initiative to develop “instruction plans” for each of our liaison departments. The goal of a departmental instruction plan is to profile the curriculum in a discipline and strategically identify prospective courses for offering library instructional support where the greatest number of students can experience the most benefit, relevant to specific assignments and discipline-specific skill areas. The plan also captures specific information literacy core competencies that the librarian plans to address in those targeted courses. This poster will present elements of the GVSU University Libraries instruction plan format, in relation to the School of Engineering’s program assessment plans, and to courses targeted for possible collaboration with the Engineering Liaison Librarian.
