Breaking the Information Desk: A Dialogue on Collaboration and Engagement Across All Levels of Stakeholders
Illinois Information Literacy Summit (2012)

Abstract
As librarians, we are at the center of various stakeholders in the institution and in the community. Patrons, students, faculty, and administrators come to us to guide them to many layers of content within physical and virtual walls of information. We teach each of our stakeholders the value of information-seeking from the basic, “this is the library,” to more complex, “this is how this technology works.” In other words, we, as librarians, are collaborators across all levels of the institution. So how can we go beyond the information desk? How can we be agents to each of our stakeholders? How can we expand information literacy? In this presentation, I will highlight some collaborative efforts in my institution, Robert Morris University Illinois, especially the different ways of reaching our stakeholders. For example, the use of technology in teaching and engaging all stakeholders of the university. Additionally and more importantly, this presentation is more of a dialogue between us, librarians, as we share ideas on collaborating with and engaging our stakeholders from patrons/students to administrators/faculty.
