IU Librarian Carrie Donovan to serve as Curriculum Designer for AiA project


Carrie Donovan has been selected to serve as a curriculum designer/facilitator for "Assessment in Action: Academic Libraries and Student Success" (AiA), a three-year project conceived by the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) and funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to support the design, implementation, and evaluation of a program to strengthen the competencies of librarians in campus leadership and data-informed advocacy. Carrie’s role will be to create dynamic and authentic learning experiences for participating librarians using blended learning and peer-to-peer collegial relationships resulting in action learning projects.


As the Head of Teaching & Learning for the Indiana University Libraries, Carrie leads a team of three librarians and 15 graduate assistants in designing, delivering, and assessing library instruction sessions across a variety of courses and disciplines. Carrie’s contribution to information literacy is further evidenced by her publications and presentations on the topic, as well as her engagement in professional organizations locally, state-wide, and nationally. She currently serves as Chair of the ACRL Immersion Program Committee, Chair of the CIC (Big Ten Libraries) Instruction Librarians, and Co-Chair of the ACRL 2013 Panel Sessions Committee. Her research areas of interest include the review and reward of librarians’ teaching, student-centered learning for library instruction, and critical information literacy.
