LMU Librarians Win 2017 Innovation Award
Susan Gardner Archambault, Head of Reference & Instruction at the William H. Hannon Library, and Lindsey McLean, instructional designer at AbbVie, Inc. and former LMU Librarian, have been awarded the 2017 Innovation Award from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Instruction Section for their work on Project CORA: Community of Online Research Assignments. The annual award recognizes a project that demonstrates creative, innovative or unique approaches to information literacy instruction or programming. 

Project CORA is an open access resource for faculty and librarians looking for a collaborative space to share and adapt research assignments, as well as build a virtual community of practice for educators interested in teaching concepts related to information literacy. It was developed from a Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium Project Initiatives Fund grant. The grant proposed to expand upon an internal information literacy assignment collection at Loyola Marymount University by using the "recipe" metaphor to envision the assignments as recipes that could be tweaked or adapted to fit into any information literacy curriculum.

Project CORA is open to all educators and librarians. Learn more on the Project CORA websiteCongratulations to Susan and Lindsey!
