Christina Chester-Fangman, instruction librarian and assistant professor, had a “recipe” included in the Library Instruction Cookbook published by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL). Unveiled at the recent American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference in Chicago, Ill., the book is a practical collection of "learning recipes" that includes plans for conducting learning sessions and indicating how these exercises teach research skills from the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education.
