There is a growing  trend in academic libraries to enlist librarians with instructional design experience to assist with the opportunities and challenges of developing information literacy instruction both in-person and for online environments. In doing so, many institutions look for an individual who has the knowledge and skills to design, develop, and deploy elearning objects while also taking on more traditional public service responsibilities. Recognizing the varied expertise of instructional designers and the various skills associated with the development of eLearning objects such as sound instructional design practices, technology proficiencies, creativity and graphic arts, our institution has sought to create a team of instructional design librarians. The result has been the ability to create innovative and effective in-person and online instruction across the organization.  Attendees will learn how two instructional design librarians are able to systematically work together to address the instructional design needs of a large university library.
