Abstract
Calibrated Peer Review™ (CPR) is a program that can significantly enhance the ability to integrate intensive information literacy exercises into large classroom settings. CPR is founded on a solid pedagogic base for learning, and it is formulated in such a way that information skills can easily be inserted. However, there is no mention of its application for information literacy in the library literature. A sample implementation of CPR in a course co-taught by science disciplinary faculty and librarians at Purdue University is presented with recommendations for optimal use of this resource. CPR is a valuable new tool that librarians can use to further their collaborations with disciplinary faculty
