The Association of College & Research Libraries* and I (Maureen Perry) believe that information literacy involves lifelong learning. In this spirit I’ll share a recent learning experience .
I have been working with a section of Lewiston-Auburn College’s senior seminar course. The focus of this particular section is sustainability. As I heard the students’ fascinating takes on the theme, I thought about what I would choose for a topic, if I were a student in the course. Now I’m reading more about how libraries–especially academic libraries–can help sustain their respective communities. This reading will benefit me beyond the particular course.
Obviously I learn a great deal from every student I encounter. I share this particular example as a call for us to be explicit about our lifelong learning. By doing so we can model it.
