Presentation Description

Students today by habit go to Google to begin their research--the results oftentimes contain the likes of Wikipedia, or web sites driven by marketing and bias, rather than reliable academic content. At the same time, the library offers a plethora of great information which is increasingly underutilized. How do we teach students to properly research in a world of growing information? We will address how we are building tools to cultivate research skills that are critical not only in academia, but in our everyday information-driven lives.
