UL’s Associate University Librarian for Research and Academic Collaboration Services contributes to a new book by AMICAL

​Fatmeh Charafeddine, Associate University Librarian for Research and Academic Collaboration Services at the AUB University Libraries, was a contributing author in a book entitled “Faculty-Librarian Collaborations: Integrating the Information Literacy Framework into Disciplinary Courses".

This book is a collection of case studies, information literacy lesson plans, and other collaborations completed by contributing members of AMICAL.

The content started as part of a workshop held in 2017 titled “Co-design: Integrating Information Literacy into Your Disciplinary Course". 

Workshop attendees were all behind one goal: integrating the ACRL Framework into a disciplinary course. They took the opportunity of getting together and shared their experiences and thoughts for the benefit of Library professionals and information literacy experts.

​Charafeddine's contribution to the content is in 3 different parts of the book, namely:

  • Case Study 7: “Redesigning a Writing-Intensive Graduate Course: An Information Literacy Case Study at AUB", co-authored with Dr. Najla Jarkas, also of AUB
  • Lesson Plan 1: “Getting Started with Graduate Research"
  • Lesson Plan 9: “Research in the Discipline"

Describing being a part of this initiative, Charafeddine said that “It was a great experience to be working with Information Literacy librarians and faculty members from all AMICAL institutions to share our course co-design knowledge and experiences."
