This presentation will describe a pilot program designed to integrate information literacy instruction naturally into an existing departmental framework. Forsyth Library collaborated with Fort Hays State University’s Department of Communication Studies to identify the specific information literacy needs of public relations and advertising students and strategically scaffold lessons throughout several classes in that major. This presentation will address necessary steps in establishing this collaborative approach and potential pitfalls librarians may encounter. This presentation will be most useful to academic libraries who have been unsatisfied with outcomes of traditional one shot instruction sessions. This is an active collaboration and Forsyth Library will begin the first integrated lessons during the fall 2018 semester with the pilot program extending out to spring 2019.
