Today's librarians must be comfortable working in online learning environments, teaching information literacy courses, and supporting online students across curricula. With the rapid proliferation of the Internet and online technologies in the last decade, however, it is not uncommon for some library professionals to feel left behind. Designing Online Learning: A Primer for Librarians provides best practices for librarians who are unfamiliar with online education and need guidance in either developing an online course or providing support to faculty and students in online courses.

This book offers practical guidance for librarians and educators serving a variety of users, including students and teachers in the K–12, public, and academic library communities. The authors provide a valuable introduction to online teaching and learning that details elementary technologies and technical standards, utilizes case studies that showcase successful programs, and identifies best practices for design, instructor development, and student assessment.
