The evolving role of the teaching librarian

Abstract:

This chapter explores the origins of the academic teaching librarian role and describes how the development of the role has been shaped by librarians’ own conceptions of their professional teaching identity, as well as the conceptions and attitudes of academics. The chapter also explores the rationale for the teaching role, as well as the barriers encountered by teaching librarians in their efforts to integrate with the curriculum. Finally, the instructional knowledge and skills that teaching librarians require in their pre-service and continuing professional education are discussed, including the importance of reflective practice.
