The Accidental Instruction Librarian: A Panel of Public and Academic Librarians Who Teach

Instruction in libraries is an essential function, and librarians of all backgrounds -- reference, technology, public and academic -- can wind up teaching, many without any formal instruction training and without any expectation that they would be expected to teach. How do librarians become comfortable and confident instructors? This panel of public and academic librarians will discuss their experiences from instruction novices, without formal training during their MLS experience, to their roles as librarians who teach.
