dc.description.abstract Part-time faculty members play an integral role on campus in student instruction, especially in the teaching of undergraduate“gatekeeper”courses, which often have associated information literacy learning outcomes. Yet, these faculty members are a frequently forgotten community on campus who remain physically, emotionally, and intellectually disconnected from other university departments and the institution-at-large. Collaboration with part-time faculty should,therefore, be of great interest to academic librarians who are trying to promote research and information evaluation skills at all levels across the campus. Oddly, there is very little in the recent library literature about the part-time faculty population and their relationship to the academic library, with most of the scholarship having been published in the 1980s. The purpose of this research study is two-fold. First, it is an attempt to reenergize the conversation between part-time faculty and academic librarians by supporting the position that the part-time faculty are an under served campus group in need of academic library outreach. Second, it will provide librarians with necessary data to better understand part-time faculty library use and, subsequently,improve specific outreach initiatives. en_US
