Research in the Studio, Artists in the Stacks: Mapping Information Literacy and the Library in a Studio Arts Program
Larissa K. Garcia and Jessica Labatte
This chapter describes the collaboration between a studio arts faculty member and an art librarian to integrate information literacy into the photography program through curriculum mapping. What began as a one-shot library session for students soon developed into multiple, scaffolded sessions in several classes and eventually resulted in a formalized information literacy curriculum map. The authors adapted curriculum mapping concepts, first identifying information literacy objectives for students throughout the program and then matching them to specific courses, using the Framework as a guide to develop assignments and lesson plans. Through a fully integrated, disciplinary information literacy program in the photography curriculum, the authors have contextualized information literacy as an important part of the creative process while also underscoring the value of the library and its various resources.
