Presentation Description

It is a widely known fact that many college students believe Google has the answers - if they cannot Google it, then no information on the topic exists. Several of our English 102 professors have been combating this Google myth independently and have worked to instill an appreciation of library research databases as a part of their research classroom instruction. A collaborative effort between an English course instructor and the Outreach/ Instruction Librarian at Limestone College is one such instance to dispel this myth as well to provide students early in their college experience good research skills.
