Cooperative Library Instruction Project

Cooperative Library Instruction Project | Librarians Teaching Information Literacy | Scoop.it

The Cooperative Library Instruction Project (CLIP) is a partnership between Chemeketa Community College, Lane Community College, Oregon State University, Western Oregon University and Willamette University whose mission is to design and develop  sharable, web-based tutorials to assist in library instruction and  information literacy.

CLIP is creating tutorials that specifically address the larger ideas of information literacy. The collection might look something like an interactive, online information literacy "text book" from which librarians or instructors anywhere can select and use pieces as they choose.
