Here’s a tool for library school instructors, library students, professional development instructors, and current librarians poised to change, which specifically addresses the pedagogy of reference and information services in flux. It will help answer questions such as:

  • How may we better educate a new and current generation of reference and information service professionals, given the challenges they will likely encounter?
  • What kinds of assignments could be devised to better promote active learning in a transformative field like reference and information services?
  • What new approaches or theories could be applied to assist library professionals in meeting the informational needs of users?
