Ventura College (VC), Moorpark College (MC), and Oxnard College (OC) are feeder schools for California State University Channel Islands (CI) and share the student learning outcome of developing information literacy (IL) in students.  In 2018, the four colleges hosted a Regional Information Literacy Summit. A lesson learned from this event was that continued collaboration would positively impact student IL skills as they advanced through the community colleges and on to CI. One path identified to achieve this was to create a suite of IL modules for Canvas for the colleges to share and customize to fit their needs.

Librarians from VC and CI began working together to create content for these modules in spring 2019 and piloted the content in different ways. VC embedded content in an online transfer-level English course and Physical Geology course. These courses were selected so both broader and more specialized IL content could be created. CI piloted the content in an online Early Dance History course and an Early Theatre History course. These courses were selected due to their research component and the need for more advanced topics, such as primary source instruction. The pilot courses allowed librarians to create varying levels of IL content and determine if the model would be sustainable.

In this session, librarians from VC and CI will highlight the benefits of their collaboration, describe their content creation process, and provide examples of their content in the hopes of inspiring attendees to collaborate and create with their local librarian colleagues.
