Welcome to the 2017 MLA Annual Conference! This year’s theme is Radical Librarianship - the power of libraries to provide access to the truth, strengthen our community voices, create opportunity for exploration and innovation, and assist our patrons to build a better future. Libraries have always been radical, but what does Radical Librarianship mean for us today? Join us at the 2017 MLA Annual Conference to help shape that conversation!

How do we teach first-year college students about information literacy, and how do we know if we've been successful? This session explores the writing classes at the University of Minnesota, Rochester. We've flipped the classroom, and have had the students complete an information literacy assessment that has informed the teaching throughout the year. At the end of the spring semester, the same tool was given again, allowing us to determine what worked, what needed improvement, and how we could present the curriculum more effectively in the future.
