Abstract

Curriculum mapping is a process that maps standards or skills to different points of the curriculum in order to establish a progressive sequence. While this is common practice in K-12 settings, it is much less common in a college or university. Librarians can utilize curriculum mapping to organize and create library instruction, without unnecessary overlap. On a broader scale, curriculum mapping helps to integrate librarian-led sessions and faculty-led sessions to successfully promote information literacy. In addition to defining curriculum mapping, in this session we will look at three different models of curriculum mapping, one in particular that employs the ACRL Information Literacy Standards for Science and Engineering/Technology.
