Now that the semester is winding down (in varying degrees), it’s a great time to reflect a little bit on library instruction. I find that during the fall blitz, it’s difficult to find the time to come up with new ideas, let alone reflect on why things worked or didn’t work. Winter break, on the other hand, is a lot quieter, especially those days when we’re in the library without the students.
I suggest checking out Maria Accardi’s new book, Feminist Pedagogy for Library Instruction, which I reviewed in the Fall WGSS Newsletter. I enjoyed this book because it was a pleasure to read, which is not always a remark I can make with respect to library literature. What’s more, it strikes a good balance between theory/methodology and practical tips. If you’ve read the book and incorporated it into your instruction, let us know in the comments below.
