In the digital age, libraries need to reach their users where they are. Increasingly, that means providing online parallels to what has been traditionally offered by libraries face-to-face. The current co-chairs of the MLA’s Instruction Round Table sought to develop a community of practice around this issue to develop structure and support for delivering instruction online. Participants will gain hands-on experience developing a plan to turn face-to-face instruction into the online environment. Session participants will walk away with a clear concept of how to improve their approach to online information literacy instruction.
