OCLC Research Works in Progress webinar recording suggests ways libraries may influence the content faculty select for teaching

#orlp

View the recording of this OCLC Research Works in Progress webinar, "'I Am the Content.' How and Why Instructors Discover and Share Course Readings" to learn more about how Temple University librarians conducted 10 structured interviews with faculty in order to learn more about how and why they choose and share content with their students. The interviews revealed how the faculty experience of discovery is rooted in their self-identity as readers and experts, and is something they aim to model for their students. The results from these interviews may suggest ways for libraries and publishers to influence what content faculty select and integrate into their teaching.

Webinar presenters from Temple University included Jenifer Baldwin, Head of Reference and Instructional Services;  Richard Lezenby, Librarian for Psychology and Political Science; and Anne Harlow, Librarian for Music, Dance, and Theater.
