As more and more institutions hire Instructional Technology Librarians, there are different descriptions, roles, and duties that these librarians fill. For a long time, instructional technology resided within an Information Technology Services department, or even through a Faculty Development program. But how does the role of instructional technologist and librarian overlap? How have librarians adopted the role of instructional technologist (making them instructional technology librarians), and how will this evolve as more and more librarians, faculty, students, and staff incorporate technology into their teaching and learning? As an Instructional Technology and Information Literacy Librarian, the lines between what is solely instructional technology and information literacy no longer exists, and are two critical components of job descriptions-but how do librarians define where their roles end and campus or library IT takes over? This session will explore these questions and look to discuss some of the challenges associated with walking the line between technologist and librarian.
