Faculty Librarians Present at Statewide Annual Conference

Faculty librarians Jenny Rushing, Rachel Scott and Judy Williams presented during the 2009 Conference of the Tennessee Library Association, held April 8-10 in Nashville. Rushing participated in a session titled “Connections and Collaborations: Partnerships in K-16 Bibliographic Instruction” with librarians from Lambuth University and the Tennessee State Library and Archives. Her focus was Bunch Library’s contribution to the Conversations@Belmont series, a successful collaboration between local school and academic librarians in order to prepare high school students for the transition to college. The series can serve as a model for other academic libraries to adopt. Rushing, Scott and Williams presented “From 0 to 200! Building an Information Literacy Program from the Ground UP.” The session described the development of Belmont University’s information literacy program, its integration into the General Education curriculum, goals for program growth and recent library upgrades designed to better serve the university community.
