Short Session Description (one line):
This session will describe one academic library’s path to bootstrapping an instructional design position and one librarian’s evolution into an Instructional Design Librarian.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
With limited funds and limited positions, how do academic libraries decide when it is time to design a new type of librarian position, especially if that might mean relinquishing a traditional librarian role? In this session, we’ll describe how a small, rural, regional comprehensive academic library collaborated with the campus Information Technology department and made the leap to creating an Instructional Design Librarian position. The Instructional Design Librarian will describe how her years as an academic librarian helped prepare her for this new adventure.
