Creating Learning Opportunities in Open Education: An Exploration of the Intersections of Information Literacy and Scholarly Communication
Since publication of the Association of College & Research Libraries white paper on the intersections of scholarly communication and information literacy in 2013, a growing number of projects and programs embodying librarianship at the Intersections have been described in library literature. This work has focused primarily on building stronger partnerships between information literacy and scholarly communication librarians, engaging undergraduate students in topics of scholarly communication, and integrating data literacies into outreach and instruction. However, discussion of open education through this lens has been largely absent from the literature. This chapter bridges that gap. It presents the theoretical background of the Intersections and explores open education’s connection to information literacy and librarians’ long history of teaching within higher education.
