  • Todays lecture will focus on how to reach undergraduates just starting out in their studies.
  • A diverse group of people with different ideas about searching and finding. They may have different ideas about referencing. Being what is often called digital natives which describes the time they are born, into to the digital age. This does not mean they are digital geniuses.
  • In my mind the library is the fountain of knowledge within the university. Be it communal fountain of knowledge. For all departments; students, faculty and teachers to use and enjoy. One of the library’s role is namely to provide access to trusted content. The peer-reviewed and the acknowledged scholarly content to work with in academia.However. This is mind-boggling to many students. The “trusted content”. Because: Being part of academia changes the way they are used to think about information. How they are used to search for it and how they find it. Most importantly though, how they use it.

  • Using popular culture to explain how ideas are referenced. Using google Scholar as a starting point to direct them into the world of database searching.Using Wikipedia as a tool to teach information literacy. The information there is on the quality rise. So many using it that (ref toRunarEggen’s lecture) institutions, individuals; educators are updating the information provided.
  • This is one way of explaining how one idea: the gingham fabric has travelled through history.It’s a metaphor for how the “original idea” is still there, from 1885 -2010, with examples of how it has been utilized and displayed, students should be able to see that the origin of the fabric design is still there.
  • The same goes for the sandal shoe. One idea worked upon into so many different ideas. But you can still spot the original idea.
  • And now for a musical demonstration. (Please move the mouse over the action package located in the lower left corner of the slide to play sound example)Because citing references shouldn’t be such a hard idea to get. But with the copy/paste culture of the digital natives it sometimes can be. Top left is the original source (Pall Oskar)Next is the band citing Pall Oskar, the original source (Hjaltalin)Third is the band citing Hjaltalin (citing a secondary source; Retro Stefson). Retro Stefson publicly announced their version as a cover of Hjaltalin‘s cover.

  • As a way of getting students to relate to critical thinking. How they can base their ideas and work on others (citing references of course) and in a way, by thinking critically about the subject, they themselves can “destroy it until it’s beatiful”. This is critical thinking. I like the reverse effect of this phrase.
  • Reykjavik University’s Library provides customized toolbars students, faculty and teachers can download Toolbar to direct students towards trusted content.Databases.This is where they can be more or less sure about finding trusted content to work with and cite.
  • Go live for download and demonstration to database search. Toolbar download and use pushed at undergraduates but more importantly at those in year 2 and onwards. Google scholar will be our stepping stone into database searches with freshmen, 1. year students.
  • Go live onto facebook. Also EbscoHost share bit. Add this to your browser. The library guiding students through the noise.
