The Teaching and Learning Library

Welcome to the Teaching and Learning Library


This guide supports the work of librarians leading information literacy development. It describes a 5-step process approach framing library instruction to meet higher education quality assurance standards. Please check each tab for our workshop materials from the Ontario Library Association pre-conference workshop 2013 to support your efforts as a leader in the learning library. To support librarians in the development of their teaching, we offer professional development workshops that follow our TO-LEAD curriculum framework.
