Teaching Literary Research

About Timothy Hackman

Librarian for English & Linguistics, University of Maryland Libraries. Member of LES since 2006.

Brand-new from ACRL publications is Teaching Literary Research: Challenges in a Changing Environment, edited by LES’sTeaching Literary Research own Steven Harris (University of New Mexico) and Kathleen Johnson (University of Nebraska-Lincoln). This book also features essays by LES members Laura Taddeo (University at Buffalo, see the previous post), Dan Coffey (Iowa State) and Meg Meiman (Delaware).

Teaching Literary Research is “a collection of essays that explores the relationship between information literacy and literary research. English professors and librarians provide perspectives on this relationship through presentations of best practices in teaching students from first year undergraduate through graduate levels.”

This promises to be a valuable resource for all of us who do library instruction. Congratulations to everyone involved in this great project!
