Olin College of Engineering’s Library staff set a 2013 academic year goal to transform their instructional program. Grounded in ACRL standards and ABET accreditation criteria, the program would become workshop-based, combining classroom experiences with digital exercises and tools. This presentation highlights the conception and development of the program's research rubric, online portal and interactive tutorials, along with assessment and accreditation potential. The value of the library-faculty-vendor partnership is highlighted and a brief look forward is taken.
