Historically the CSB/SJU Media Department was a division of the libraries. However, in early 2018 the administration decided to move the department under IT Services as a result of a consultant's recommendation which came out of program review for the department. This change has helped the libraries and Instructional Technology (formally media services) form a more focused partnership. Miranda Novak is the Assistant Director for the newly-formed Instructional Technology group and Sarah Gewirtz is the Information Literacy Librarian working together to ensure that the library partnership and values continues as this department transitions to its new organizational structure. During our presentation we will discuss how the librarians and instructional technologists are working together; how we are incorporating information literacy into technology classes; how we redesigned the classes to incorporate more hands-on learning; discuss the beginnings of our assessment plan; and, explain how this new structure has impacted everyone involved.
