Book cover for The Craft of Library Instruction

Abstract: Library instruction is like a theatre performance. You play a role as the instruction librarian. There is a live audience. You may receive reviews or evaluations. Or maybe the teaching experience feels more like an audition—a bit unnerving. Based on their recently published book “The Craft of Librarian Instruction: Using Acting Techniques to Create Your Teaching Presence,” join Julie Artman, Jeff Sundquist, and Doug Dechow for a fun and creative approach to library instruction.
