Book focusing on IMPACT program ready for preorder

Clarence Maybee, information literacy specialist and associate professor at Purdue, has authored a book about the Instruction Matters: Purdue Academic Course Transformation (IMPACT) program, and preorders are now available at a discounted price.

“IMPACT Learning: Librarians at the Forefront of Change in Higher Education,” which will launch on March 1, describes how academic libraries can enable the success of higher education students by creating or partnering with teaching and learning initiatives that support student learning through engagement with information.

This book discusses existing models, extracting lessons from Purdue Libraries’ partnership with other units to create a campus-wide course development program, IMPACT, to provide academic libraries with tools and strategies for working with faculty and departments to integrate information literacy into disciplinary courses.

It also helps teachers and students deal with information in the context of a discipline and its specific needs and presents an informed learning approach where students learn to use information as part of engagement with subject content.
