Albertsons Library faculty use the model presented in Ernest Boyer’s 1990 Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate, where scholarship is broadly defined as having four functions: discovery, integration, application and teaching. Library faculty value the creation, sharing, and application of knowledge as products of our own work and as a means of self-improvement, leading to greater understanding of the fields in which we work.
Every tenure-eligible library faculty member is expected to produce high-quality and disciplinarily-relevant scholarship, relative to whatever form scholarship takes for them and whatever portion of their workload is assigned to scholarship. Faculty are responsible for presenting evidence to support the assessment of their scholarship.
