We have Guidelines, now what? Putting Primary Source Literacy into practice in the special collections classroom

This seminar will continue the conversation begun last year at the RBMS 2018 session “Primary Source Literacy as a Tool for Student Engagement and Faculty Partnerships.” This iteration will provide further ideas on how the ACRL/RBMS-SAA Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy can inform our instruction philosophies and methods. The panel will open with a discussion of the ACRL Frameworks for Information Literacy for Higher Education by an Information Literacy Instruction librarian.  Since the Framework was ratified in 2015, our ILI colleagues have had several years of living into the new standards and so can reflect on how the Framework has changed the shape of ILI. With that experience in mind, the other three speakers will reflect on how we can use the Guidelines to rethink how we do instruction individually and collaboratively, overall and for specific courses, and how we assess our instruction efforts. Participants will come away with concrete ideas to help them leverage the Guidelines in their instruction sessions
