Description

As colleges and universities begin to globalize their curriculums and to include global readiness in their institutional missions, New Jersey City University (NJCU) has provided grants that strongly encourage faculty and librarians to collaborate on curriculum development and/or revision to foster internationalization of the curriculum at the university level. Librarians can provide improved support for research and learning through actively investigating and informing faculty members about resources in respective disciplines. This paper describes a faculty-librarian partnership in a grant project to infuse international content into a revised macroeconomics curriculum. The paper presents a win-win collaboration that allows both the faculty member and the librarian to work together to build and enhance curriculum-specific resources, and to create a meaningful learning experience while improving students’ information literacy skills.
