Abstract

Library run co-curricular programs offer a powerful response to the growing demand for academic librarians to perform new roles to improve students’ information literacy. Increasing in popularity, co-curricular programs are embedding information literacy skills in increasingly unique, creative, and effective ways. Initiated by the Run Run Shaw Library, CityU, the poetry recital project is a co-curricular program which connects students with historical East Asian poetry in a fun, engaging and insightful manner. This paper recounts how the poetry recital project facilitated a knowledge transfer linking students to scholars, and used historical poetry as a device to embed information literacy teachings.
