3 Discussion of the proposed design among students.
4 Basic documents Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (ALA/ACRL, 2000). Information Competencies for Students in Design Disciplines (ALSNA, 2007). Plan de acción para la integración de las competencias de información en la Escuela de Arquitectura de la UPR (UPR/EA/BSIH, 2009).
5 Goals Establish collaborative teamwork between faculty and librarians for the incorporation of information and research competencies in the courses. Gradually integrate information competencies to course syllabi to enhance the curriculum of the School of Architecture as to meet the parameters set by accrediting agencies such as The Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the National Architectural Accrediting Board.
6 Goals Promote effective and efficient use of information resources in the library. Encourage critical thinking and research in all academic process. Encourage the development of research projects related to access and use of information in all of its manifestations.
7 Basic Courses ARQU 3121 Introduction to Architecture Undergraduate ARQU 6145 Research Techniques Graduate
8 Topics Information resources about Puerto Rican architecture; The effective use of the online public access catalog and databases; Bibliographic management programs; Style manuals; Annotated bibliographies; Academic honesty; Plagiarism; Copyright.
10 Discussion of Contents
12 Modules 1. Research basics 2. Search and retrieval of information resources in the Library 3. Internet for researchers 4. Evaluation of information 5. Academic Honesty and Plagiarism: Strategies to give credit to the authors
13 Shadows 1. The number of sections in the course, Introduction to architecture, were reduced. 2. Despite the existence of an institutional directive for the information competencies integration into the curriculum, few professors avoid to follow the directive. 3. More than half of the professors of the School are part-time contract. Works continuity is also affected by this labor scenario. 4. We need to reevaluate the promotion of products and services of the library and make the necessary adjustments to the Action Plan.
14 Lights 1. The library has been consistent in the evaluation of their services and products. 2. We keep meticulous records of each of the sessions and prepare a report that includes an analysis of each educational experience. 3. Architecture School Administration invites librarians in matters relating to assessment of student learning. 4. We don t see any product as final.
15 Lights 5. Students tend to request, in the evaluation form, more time to go deeper in the topics presented. 6. The undergraduate and master's students who have attended the program activities give us a positive feedback about information literacy services. 7. We have experimented a significant increase in research inquiries by undergraduate and graduate students.
16 Lights 8. Official recognition of the librarians participation in the implementation of rubrics to enhance student learning assessment. 9. Participation of librarians in multidisciplinary research groups and important institutional committees representing the School of Architecture. 10. Librarians as instructors of courses Research Techniques and Gender, Visual Culture and Architecture.
17 Reflections There is no doubt that this experience has been impacting our work routine considerably since the presence of the library as a learning and knowledge producer is in full development. It is a stage full of new possibilities and challenges that involve rearrangement of strategies and above all an open mind to think and plan out of the box.
