Why should students spend time navigating to find the library tools needed to search? Why not provide direct links to library resources so more time is spent finding, evaluating, and synthesizing information? These were questions asked by some academic librarians trying to help students locate resources for assignments.As a result, these academic librarians created online tutorials for using persistent links to library resources. Teaching faculty learned how to use the links in web pages and WebCT Vista. These tutorials were also shared at conferences. Attendees encouraged the presenters to develop a hands-on workshop. Attendees also suggested the workshop as a session at a K-12 technology showcase. During this session, the audience will learn how this redesigned 2 hour workshop was created and used to embed the “Big 6” in K-12 classes using persistent links to library resources as well as other tools to help in the research process.
