Chapter 3 is titled “Curating Technology for Learning: A Faculty View,” by Helen Turner and Patrick Lee Lucas. In this case study, the authors unveil approaches to providing equitable access to quality resources through technology from the perspective of faculty members working with and recognizing librarians as partners and willing participants in the academic enterprise. They also write of their successes and challenges in light of the burgeoning wealth of materials available online. Turner and Lucas share insights as committed educators to address the needs of so-called “digital natives” and the special challenges the students bring to the processes of learning.
