Curriculum mapping is an established practice of creating a graphic representation of the goals and outcomes of a program in relationship to the courses that are offered within that program (Kopera-Fry, Mahaffy, & Syare, 2008). Academic libraries have been taking on this process as a way to identify objectives, assignments, and strategies for implementing information literacy at a program-wide level and to foster deeper collaboration between the library and departments. Two librarians at UBCO have created curriculum maps for two graduate programs and created proposed programs for information literacy to be embedded within programs. This poster will explore this process, theory, and reflection on implementation.
