Creative Instructional Design: Practical Applications for Librarians is an edited volume of twenty-five chapters relating the experiences of academic librarians who have incorporated instructional design (ID) into their practice, primarily information literacy instruction. More in depth than just a series of lesson plans, this book makes strong use of the first person to offer candid reflections on the process of getting started with ID. In later chapters, the scenarios move beyond the application of ID to information literacy to discuss the incorporation of design into other areas, like planning faculty workshops and designing a library internship.
