In a general science education course, Herbs, Spices and Medicinal Plants, 
taught at a research university, librarians and the professor worked to incorporate 
information literacy (library research skills) tips, resources, assignments and 
evaluative criteria into the class material. This article details the collaboration 
process employed between the faculty member and the librarians to enhance the 
learning process.  A specific example of a collaborative effort and a framework for 
replicating the learning model used are also outlined.
