Throughout 2018-19, librarians at Messiah University worked with the Director of First Year Core Courses to develop a scaffolded four-session information literacy program throughout the two core writing courses in the First Year student’s curriculum. Academic year 2019-2020 was the first year for full implementation. The first three sessions were delivered in person and included flipped and active learning strategies. COVID-related closure of campus required immediate conversion of the final session to an online format. The presenter will share information about these curricular revisions, and then the revision of the final information literacy session to online.
