The presentation will detail the structure and results of a collaborative project that linked graduate library science students with undergraduate dance students. The project was designed to raise awareness in the dance students that information literacy skills are an important part of professional development in the arts and to develop or improve those skills. In recognition of the importance of information literacy skills to performance arts students, dance students were asked to complete a reflective paper. The paper had to be grounded in the research base of dance.
