The faculty and information specialist partnership: stimulating student interest and experiential learning.
Faculty are challenged to find innovative ways to teach the skills for evidenced-based practice and information literacy. Librarians are natural partners with nurse educators because of their information literacy expertise. Literature shows that an experiential approach is an effective strategy for teaching undergraduate nursing research. The authors describe the development and implementation of simple research projects in an undergraduate nursing research course and the collaboration among course faculty, nursing students, and the information literacy specialist.
