From the cutting edge of innovations in online education comes the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), a potentially disruptive and transformational mechanism for large-scale learning. What’s the role of librarians in a MOOC?

This paper explores the experiences and perceptions of librarians/information professionals participating in an LIS-centered MOOC taught by the authors.
