Presentation Description

Acknowledging that information literacy skills can’t be fully developed in a one-shot library instruction section, librarians at Macon State College are constantly looking for ways to introduce information basics and reinforce skills in ways that will encourage student participation. In the weeks leading up to the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking this year, librarians piggy-backed on the coverage to introduce students to library resources and the flow of the information cycle. Strategies ranged from the scholarly to a “Titanic tea party” featuring costumes, authentic music played on the ship, and displays.
