For over 25 years, the need for bibliographic instruction by librarians has been thoroughly studied, guidelines have been provided, publications have been expanded, and workshops and conferences have been held. Increasing efforts have been made to incorporate library instruction into general education and other programs and courses. Despite the success of individual programs, there still remains no widespread acceptance of the librarian’s role in curriculum planning and course‐integrated instruction. As Winner writes, library and university administrators, teaching faculty, and librarians should assume a greater leadership role in encouraging librarians to teach library skills, research strategies, and methodologies for life long learning. Librarians should form partnerships with classroom faculty and be encouraged to teach both subject content and research methodologies courses.
