This timely book provides librarians with widely used and emerging methods and models of instruction for online learners through applied examples of successful use.

Current models of online learning may be viewed as a hybridization of teaching methods used in the traditional classroom and the technological advancements of distance education. From a pedagogical sense, then, how can online learning effectively foster student-centered, creative environments that encourage collaboration and discussion?

Information Literacy Instruction Online provides librarians everything they need to engage learners in online learning and improve online information literacy instruction, including adaptable templates, assignments, and checklists. Michael Courtney shares innovative methods of instruction for online learners—learning management systems and tools as well as online learning objects to create a platform for student investment in and ownership of the learning process.

Through applied examples from library professionals at university, school, and public libraries, readers are shown how to effectively employ methods proven to have been successfully used in the online-learning community. Additional discussion focuses on how these approaches can enhance teaching, training, and peer collaboration within the library workplace and within a local community context.
