Librarians can play an important role in supporting service learning initiatives and administrators in making informed use of the knowledge resources available to them. Presenters will outline how the pedagogy that underlies service learning also foregrounds the pedagogy that occurs in library-based research instruction, otherwise known as information literacy. Attendees will learn how to connect service learning and information literacy through the use of the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. This framework can serve as an important tool for: designing campus resources that can impact community welfare; creating environments of collaboration across the education continuum; and appraising the impact of community-based assignments.

This is a presentation from Campus Compact conference in Boston, MA on March 22, 2016.
