Visual Literacy Meets Information Literacy: How Two Academic Librarians Combined Information Science and Design in Their Careers by Mary J. Snyder Broussard and Judith Schwartz

The two authors of this chapter both worked in graphic design departments before obtaining their Master of Library & Information Science degrees, and subsequent professional positions in academic libraries. Framed within a context of visual literacy, this chapter describes each author’s experiences with graphic design and how the skills gained from those experiences lend themselves well to academic library outreach, instruction, web design, and archival work.
