Mills Presents at Research Libraries Confrence

Coordinator of Research Services Jenny Rushing Mills, who works in the Bunch Library, presented a workshop at the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) conference in Indianapolis on April 11. The goal of the interactive workshop, titled “Riding the RAILS of Rubric Assessment to Keep Information Literacy Learning on Track,” was to enable academic librarians to critique information literacy rubrics and practice the processes of norming, rating and creating customized rubrics. Mills has participated in the RAILS Project (Rubric Assessment of Information Literacy Skills) since 2009 along with librarians from across the country. At Belmont, the AAC&U Information Literacy VALUE rubric has been used to assess student learning in Pharmacy, Nursing and First Year Writing courses.
