University of Hawaii at Manoa Library Receives
2001 Innovation in Instruction Award

The University of Hawaii at Manoa Library has been chosen to receive the 2001 Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Instruction Section (IS) Innovation in Instruction Award for its Library and Information Science (LIS) 100 course, "Libraries, Scholarship and Technology". The course represents the joint effort of University of Hawaii faculty members Randy Burke Hensley, public services division head; Professor Margit Misangyi Watts, director of Freshman Seminars/Rainbow Advantage Programs; Ross Christensen, humanities librarian; and Vicky Lebbin, social sciences librarian.

Sponsored by Lexis-Nexis Academic & Library Solutions, the award recognizes librarians who have developed and implemented innovative approaches to information literacy, which support best practices in education at their institutions or in their communities.

"The University of Hawaii at Manoa's LIS course integrates information literacy into the learning community venue and draws upon the collaborative efforts of librarians and faculty to develop and teach the course; it is a thoroughly prepared and well-executed program that is groundbreaking in our field" -- Barbara Beaton, chair of the IS Awards Committee.
