Abstract:Since the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education was released and adopted by the ACRL, academic librarians have been challenged to rethink how they teach information literacy to college students. This rethinking has led to a new approach in information literacy called “informed learning,” which teaches students how to use information within a context. In IMPACT Learning, Professor Clarence Maybee details an example of informed learning, namely the Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation (IMPACT) program.

Abstract:The opioid crisis has been a topic of much concern for much of the last decade, and it has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. The CDC estimates that 115 people per day die from overdosing on opioids, and countless articles, news stories, social media accounts, and television programs have documented the destruction. This latest volume in ABC-CLIO’s Contemporary World Issues series, authored by David E. Newsome, a prolific writer with an EdD in science education, tackles the history, epidemiology, and controversies surrounding the twenty-first century public health crisis.

Abstract:Library liaisons can have full plates, as they juggle instruction, outreach, and collection development responsibilities in their work with academic departments. A challenge of these roles can be engaging faculty as partners. In this column, Stephen K. Johnson describes his effort to enlist faculty in the book-ordering process. He explains the creative approach he took and the results derived—along with why it matters.—Editor
