Chemeketa employs an embedded approach for library instruction, rather than offering stand-alone classes for credit. The Library has a strong commitment to reach students in all areas of the curriculum regardless of location or delivery mode. This includes students that are more challenging to reach such as those enrolled in College Inside and College Credit Now (CCN) classes.
Program areas across the curriculum request customized sessions on a variety of topics ranging from a brief orientation to sequenced, in-depth instruction in research skills and tools.
Chemeketa librarians collaborate with classroom faculty to develop course-integrated, assignment-specific lesson plans. Librarians tailor instruction to integrate national and local information literacy outcomes, to support outcomes in other college programs, and to fit the needs of individual courses and assignments while supporting students in those classes.
Librarians offer consultations and work with faculty on integrating research components into existing courses. Once a class has been scheduled, communication regarding the library instruction session(s) continues between the teaching librarian(s) and the classroom instructor. Library instruction sessions focus on
Our goal is to balance a collaborative, individualized approach with an awareness of program and course specific outcomes.
