The Cornell University Library plans to engage resourceful support to create open educational resources based on information and knowledge focused on algorithmic literacy with library instructors as the target audience. The project seeks to edify the professional development of library and archive professionals by teaching library workers algorithmic literacy, providing them with educational resources and training so that they can teach others about the role algorithms play in information access and production. This planning project will conduct participatory user research about current understandings of algorithms and educational needs related to algorithmic systems. It will then assess best practices for an algorithmic literacy package containing off-the-shelf curricula, online learning objects, and assessment tools
