Excellence at Champlain: spending Groundhog Day in the Kuhlthau model

Janet R. Cottrell

Abstract:

Ten years prior to winning the 2012 ACRL Excellence in Academic Libraries Award, the Champlain College Library in Burlington, Vermont, caused at least one faculty member to cringe with embarrassment. This chapter describes the transformation from cringe-inducing to award-winning, including collection development outreach, information literacy program development, and mission alignment. The chapter discusses the relationship between autonomy and innovation, and sets the necessity of accepting uncertainty and failure in the context of Carol Kuhlthau’s information-seeking model.
