Presentation DescriptionThis presentation explores some of the uses and benefits of short, 10-15 minute instruction sessions for information literacy pedagogy; faculty outreach, education, and relationship development; and connecting patrons with library resources and services. Short instruction sessions are a powerful tool for attracting participation among faculty unwilling or unable to sacrifice class time, engaging students without exhausting their attention, and encouraging use of library resources and services.
