Not at your service, LOEX of the West

The old relationship of librarians serving the faculty as research assistants is long gone. How can librarians and faculty become genuine partners in student learning and move towards the common goal of getting students to think critically? The presenters will describe how they debunked common myths about student research and provided alternatives to crummy research assignments using a strikingly and alarmingly frank approach. Building on this foundation, we
shift from a service orientation to a partnership in student learning. Participants will share their experiences with faculty and create a plan to take back to their own institution
