University librarians play an integral role in the academic success of students, collaborating with faculty and administration to provide students with complete information literacy and encourage critical thinking skills.In the June edition of IGI Global’s Online Symposium Series, Montana State University librarians Mary Anne Hansen and Sheila Bonnand will share their experiences in expanding instructional services by adding synchronous library instruction to better serve online students and faculty across the globe. This presentation, entitled Innovative Techniques for Online and Distance Library Users, will discuss how these librarians have utilized web conferencing for the past four years to embed interactive, high-touch library instruction in online courses.
