Instruction librarians develop a tremendous amount of instructional materials (i.e. learning objects) when they prep for teaching, and are often happy to share. If pooled, librarians' existing learning objects could dramatically, and sustainably, scale up a library instruction program by saving prep time and eliminating redundant development efforts. This presentation will illustrate a case study of how librarians at Cal State Fullerton do exactly this. Using the easy-to-learn platform Wordpress, the Instructional Design Librarian implemented a simple learning object repository to facilitate storing, sharing, and discovery of learning objects. As a result, librarians reuse and adapt their colleagues' work and have a prominent outlet to share their own materials with faculty and students. This repository increases library instruction visibility, and is expandable, through additional free and paid plug-ins, to function to as a simple Learning Management System. This presentation will outline strategies for attendees to set up their own repositories.
