Reflections in teaching a LIS course in the changing world

Title

Reflections in teaching a LIS course in the changing world

Description

As Catalog/Metadata Librarians and adjunct faculty at the LIS program of a public co-educational research university, we rethink what skills and knowledge LIS students seek to gain from the class Metadata Creation for Information Organization, and how these reflect the rapidly changing information age. In this poster, we share our experiences,
thoughts, and planned future direction in teaching the course, which is
related to cataloging, classification, metadata, and information
organization. We highlight emerging trends in the field and the
knowledge and skills that are useful for LIS students, and new librarians, to
learn for the class from our own experiences teaching these topics. A
literature review will complement our experiences and research. Some
changes to the course and thoughts on future directions for its
development will be discussed. The synthesis of this information will
impact the students' understanding of and ability to utilize metadata
skills in their library careers.
