    • Authors: David Free
      First page: 533
      Abstract: Welcome to the November 2018 issue of C&RL News. This month, we feature three articles on different aspects of information literacy (IL) instruction. In this issue’s Perspectives on the Framework column, Kristin E. C. Green writes about introducing framework concepts to novice learners in her article “Meet them in the proximal zone.”

  • Minimizing and addressing microaggressions in the workplace: Be proactive,
           part 2
    • Authors: Shamika Dalton, Michele Villagran
      First page: 538
      Abstract: Our nation’s history plays a huge role in the way we perceive underrepresented groups. From slavery to segregation, to the inequality in compensation for women and people of color, to the refusal to wed same sex couples, discrimination and opposition has plagued the United States for decades. Since the Civil Rights Movement, discrimination towards underrepresented groups has shifted from overt acts to subtle and semiconscious manifestations called microaggressions. These manifestations reside in well-intentioned individuals who are often unaware of their biased beliefs, attitudes, and actions. They can lead to inequities within our relationships and affect our work productivity.

  • Meet them in the proximal zone: Introducing framework concepts to
           “novice learners” using reference sources
    • Authors: Kristin E. C. Green
      First page: 542
      Abstract: Striving to foster critical thinking and metacognition in relation to information literacy is the penultimate goal of instruction librarians. Yet, all effort to do so is futile if students are not being met in their own proximal zone of development. Within the descriptions, knowledge practices, and dispositions of the frames in the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education,1 the “novice learner” is often referenced and compared to the “expert learner.” So while first-year college students begin their journey into higher education with varied levels of experiences in academic research and writing, many are these novice learners referred to within the Framework. Recognizing, and more importantly, accepting where these students are within their own levels of information literacy development can help to determine how to best scaffold instruction by using appropriate teaching tools and pedagogy.

  • Is there an app for that' A review of mobile apps for information
           literacy classes
    • Authors: Abbie Basile, Sherry Matis
      First page: 546
      Abstract: Our learners are as varied as the techniques we employ in information literacy classes. There is, however, one facet common to almost all of them, and it’s technology use. Let’s look at some recent numbers from the Pew Research Center. In the 18 to 29 age group, 94% of Americans own a smartphone, that number drops to just to 89% for ages 30 to 49.1 Tablets are also common, with 64% of Gen Xers and 54% of Millennials owning tablets.2 Spending time online also cuts across generations. In a March 2018 study, Pew reported that 77% of Americans go online daily, with 26% of that group stating that they are “almost constantly” online, and 43% noting that they go online several times a day.3

  • ACT UP for evaluating sources: Pushing against privilege
    • Authors: Dawn Stahura
      First page: 551
      Abstract: Like most librarians, I teach one-shot instruction sessions for numerous departments across campus on myriad topics. Fortunately, most faculty give me the entire class period to go over research techniques and evaluating sources. Prior to 2017, my discussion around evaluating sources happened towards the end of the class period, after I had demoed a few databases and searched the library catalog. This worked until it didn’t anymore. After the 2017 presidential inauguration, faculty and students returned to a more complex classroom climate, accentuated by tension, fear, and sadness.

  • Faculty/librarian collaborations enhance doctoral student success:
           Strategies for retention and graduation
    • Authors: Yu-Hui Chen
      First page: 560
      Abstract: Doctoral study is perhaps the most rigorous educational experience anybody can have. In higher education, a great amount of effort has been focused on increasing retention and graduation rates of undergraduate students. Yet, there has been little discussion about effective qualitative measures for retaining and graduating doctoral students. This neglect masks the reality that doctoral student attrition rates in the United States have been problematic for several years. A meta-analysis conducted in 2001 showed that about 50% to 71% of doctoral candidates in the humanities did not complete their degrees.1

  • Academic library assessment: Barriers and enablers for global development
           and implementation
    • Authors: Martha Kyrillidou
      First page: 566
      Abstract: Academic library assessment has grown as a field over the last 20 years. The pressures of increased competition over scarce resources and rapid technological changes have put pressures on academic libraries as they have on their parent institutions. In the midst of all the pressures and transformations lies a strong desire to be user-focused and responsive to the changing needs of faculty and students.

  • The state copyright conundrum: What’s your state government’s

    • Authors: Kyle K. Courtney
      First page: 571
      Abstract: U.S. copyright law has a unique place in the world regarding federal works and copyright. Federal copyright law states that “Copyright protection under this title is not available for any work of the United States Government.”1 This is a broad and clear statement that works of the federal government are in the public domain and are free for use by all.

  • Philanthropic partnership at the University of Iowa: Providing
           complimentary ACRL membership to LIS students
    • Authors: John P. Culshaw, Mary L. Rettig
      First page: 575
      Abstract: The strength of ACRL comes from its membership. Nevertheless, ACRL and other membership-based professional organizations face many challenges in terms of recruiting and retaining members. Of course, membership and involvement in ACRL contributes to an individual’s career success. But academic and research libraries also benefit when their employees are engaged in their professional associations. Membership and participation in professional associations provides valuable mentoring and professional development opportunities. This is true at every stage of one’s career, but it is particularly critical to help new professionals understand the value of these activities. Many would agree that graduate school is the perfect time to introduce students to their future professional associations, yet membership often remains out of reach financially for many students.

  • C&RL Spotlight
    • Authors: Wendi Kaspar
      First page: 577
      Abstract: Periodically, we may get so wrapped up in our hectic lives and the myriad of little details that we lose sight of the meaning behind our work. It is easy to lose sight of it in all the myriad of commitments and activities—reference consultations, classes to teach, resources to buy, committee meetings to go to, books to read (and write), papers to review, and on and on.

      Abstract: As the 115th Congress draws to a close, last chance to advocate for librariesAfter the federal elections on November 6 (remember to vote!), the 115th Congress will be in its final weeks before the new Congress takes office in January. This “lame-duck” session is the last chance for Congress to act on bills before they expire, making it a critical time for library advocates to contact their members of Congress about our active priorities.
