Purpose – Service learning has become an important teaching methodology in many American schools, colleges, and universities. Libraries will thus want to add resources to their collections in this subject area to support faculty and student research. This article aims to briefly define the concept of service learning and to describe selected resources in the area.
Design/methodology/approach – The annotated bibliography is divided into three sections: organizations and their web sites, Periodicals, and Books.
Findings – Service learning, once an experimental teaching and learning approach, has become well established as a pedagogy. In designing a successful service learning experience, teachers and faculty must identify real community needs, must structure the experience in such a way that students can grow and learn from it and, on completion of the experience, must assess its outcomes.
Originality/value – This paper synthesizes the literature on service learning and provides a guide for librarians who want to add materials in this area to their collection.
