The Library Fellows program provides an opportunity for faculty and library staff to work collaboratively in exploring and developing innovative models and methods of incorporating library resources and technologies across the curriculum at Columbia College Chicago. Faculty and library staff, working together as partners, will create new types of learning objects, instructional strategies, resources and/or technology tools that can be applied not only to specific courses but across the entire curriculum to enhance and promote teaching, learning and scholarship at the college. The focus of the project should be to create rich, authentic library/student interactions that will deepen the student’s relationship with the library and its resources.
