Virtual Reference in NJ Academic Libraries – Past and Future

If you are curious what other New Jersey academic libraries are doing in the area of virtual reference, visit this poster session to see the results of my survey and some of the insights I gained from it. You may be surprised to learn that only 1/3 of VALE libraries participate in QandA NJ, the statewide virtual reference service, and that most of the librarians who responded to my survey have been disappointed by the low usage of their chat reference services.

Poster Session: Collaborative Information Literacy Outreach through the Kean University Library

Janette Gonzalez, Kean University; Linda Cifelli, Kean University; Chrisler Pitts, Kean University; Shirley Horbatt, Kean University; Eleanor McKnight, Kean University; Craig Anderson, Kean University

In an effort to implement recommendations made by the Task Force on the Educational Role of Libraries established by the American Association of School Librarians and the Association of College and Research Libraries in its Blueprint for Collaboration (American Library Association, 2006), a team of Kean University librarians created and is implementing a pilot project meant to foster development of information literacy competencies among students who will soon make the transition from high school to the university setting. The project team is working collaboratively with local high school teachers and library media specialists to develop information literacy lessons for high school students, and the plans are being implemented during high school class visits to the Kean University Library.
