Don’t miss SCARLA at NJLA 2013. We’ll be presenting a poster: “What’s the Big Deal About Library Instruction: Getting library instruction experience as an MLIS student.”

Our session is on Tuesday, June 4 from 10-11 a.m.

Here’s the abstract:
The Student College, Academic, and Research Libraries Association (SCARLA) is a group of MLIS students at Rutgers University interested in academic librarianship. A recent panel session discussion sponsored by SCARLA revealed that SCI students had an interest in gaining instructional experience in a professional context as interns or volunteers. Our poster presentation will detail SCARLA’s practical problem-solving effort to increase student awareness about and experience with library instruction.
