Buchanan, Heidi E. and Beth A McDonough.The One-Shot Library Instruction Survival Guide. ALA Editions, 2014. ISBN: 978-0-8389-1215-7.

Think it is impossible to do an effective library instruction session in one hour? These experienced instruction librarians argue that you can, and talk about the strategies needed to make these one-shot sessions effective. This guide includes

  *   Communication and collaboration strategies to help librarians co-design information literacy sessions with course instructors, including "conversation starters" and talking points
  *   Active learning strategies and classroom assessment techniques that facilitate meaningful learning
  *   How to match the best hands-on activities to students' stage in the research process
  *   Solutions to common problems, like handling a less-than-ideal teaching environment, what to do when you're running short of time, and dealing with difficult students
  *   Practical ways to use teaching strategies as assessment, enabling librarians to improve teaching and learning
  *   Numerous real-world examples and case studies of one-shot library instruction
