The City Tech library anticipates a need for instructors for its 3-credit semester-long undergraduate course LIB 1201, Research and Documentation for the Information Age. We seek seasoned information literacy champions with demonstrated instruction expertise and experience. An ALA-accredited MLS is required; additional graduate degree desired. For appointment as assistant professor the second master’s is required.
The course description is as follows:
In this course students will explore issues in research and documentation for text (in print and online), images, sound and multimedia. We will investigate where information comes from and how it is organized in both traditional and emerging media. Students will examine the ethics of information use and determine how to critically evaluate sources. Throughout the course, students will create and present research and documentation projects using traditional and emerging media and technologies.

At the discretion of the department, sections may be offered in the evening or during the day; one 150-minute class or two 75-minute classes per week.
