Presentation Description

The presenters discuss their development of a textbook for college library and information seeking skills courses which has as its inspiration Thomas Mann’s popular mid-1990’s book and its use of practical mental models for the information landscape. Along with presenting their work to date, they will ask the audience to give their input as to what would make a practical textbook for librarians teaching these courses.
