    Presented by : FLC Librarians
    With One Voice: Library and Classroom Collaboration
  • Project Information Literacy
    This project, sponsored by the UW’s iSchool, began in 2008 to study the research habits of young adults in a digital environment.
    Their web page describes the ongoing study and provides links to past reports and other information: http://projectinfolit.org/
  • “Truth Be Told” Report
    November 2010 report reflected large-scale survey of 8,353 students from 25 community colleges and universities across the country.
    “Truth Be Told: How College Students Evaluate and Use Information in the Digital Age”
  • “Truth Be Told” Findings
    Students report consistently evaluating information found online:
    In collaboration with instructors or friends and family;
    Basing evaluation on currency, author’s credentials, URL (domain) and design of websites.
    Students reported trusting information obtained from the library.
  • “Truth Be Told” Findings
    Most of the students surveyed reported having problems with research:
    Starting a research project (84%)
    Defining a topic (66%)
    Narrowing the topic (62%)
    Filtering through irrelevant results (61%)
    Knowing when they have sufficient information (48%)
  • “Truth Be Told” Findings
    Fewer students than expected used Web 2.0 applications to collaborate on or manage research tasks.
    Google Docs and citation-making software were cited most often.
    Twitter and blogs were rarely used.
  • “Truth Be Told” Recommendations
    Integrate rubric outlining research process into assignment guidelines;
    Library instruction should be less about resources and more about research and evaluation skills;
    Instructors should hold students accountable for their research (i.e. require annotated bibliography explaining why resource was used).
  • Collaboration
    How can the librarians work with classroom faculty in each discipline to help students develop effective research skills?
    Break-out discussion session
  • Collaboration
    Ideas and suggestions:
    Library can post a resource guide (pathfinder) customized for class or assignment
    Make follow-up workshops or research appointments available for individuals or groups
    Embed library services into online course pages
    Customizable library assignments made available on website
  • Supporting Information
