Growing Library Presence and Information Literacy beyond the One-Shot: The NINJA Project

The limitations of one-shot library instruction have birthed innovative techniques by librarians that include the use of embedding and flipped-learning models. The implementations of these techniques requires buy-in from and relationship-building with the teaching faculty, with variables that fluctuate widely between disciplines, personalities, and teaching styles. Through a collaboration that aimed to emphasize the research process in an Argumentation & Debate course, a liaison librarian and Communication Studies faculty member developed a playful approach to the research process that also informs the process of moving one-shot library instruction into more engaged models. The original concept, which uses the acronym “NINJA”, guides students through research from navigating a topic to appraising their final product. When the approach is applied to embedding librarianship, the same steps act as a roadmap in the adventure of collaborating with any teaching faculty in order to more fully integrate library services and information literacy into their courses. Attendees will be able to adapt this model to navigate the variety of settings, tools, and methods that librarians and faculty may consider in meeting this end. Additional materials for attendees will be posted online.
