Mission Possible: A Retreat to Prepare Librarians to Infiltrate Upper-level CurriculaIntroduction to Staff Development in Academic Libraries
AbstractFrom its humble beginnings a scant fifty years ago as a small desert school, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) has rapidly evolved into a dynamic urban academic institution dedicated to creating a learning environment that empowers students to become lifelong learners. UNLV's first classes were held in 1957, and its solitary campus building housed all of the classrooms, offices, science labs, and a library of 2,000 books managed by a part-time librarian. Today, the UNLV Libraries include the 302,000 square foot Lied Library, three campus branches, 125 employees, and a book collection that expanded to well past a million volumes. A multitude of electronic library resources has become a key element of scholarly research and a necessary focus for information literacy (IL) instruction in the UNLV Libraries.
