    1. 1. Flex Spring 2011 <br />Presented by : FLC Librarians<br />With One Voice: Library and Classroom Collaboration<br />
    2. 2. Project Information Literacy<br />This project, sponsored by the UW’s iSchool, began in 2008 to study the research habits of young adults in a digital environment.<br />Their web page describes the ongoing study and provides links to past reports and other information: http://projectinfolit.org/<br />
    3. 3. “Truth Be Told” Report<br />November 2010 report reflected large-scale survey of 8,353 students from 25 community colleges and universities across the country.<br />“Truth Be Told: How College Students Evaluate and Use Information in the Digital Age”<br />
    4. 4. “Truth Be Told” Findings<br />Students report consistently evaluating information found online:<br />In collaboration with instructors or friends and family;<br />Basing evaluation on currency, author’s credentials, URL (domain) and design of websites.<br />Students reported trusting information obtained from the library.<br />
    5. 5. “Truth Be Told” Findings<br />Most of the students surveyed reported having problems with research:<br />Starting a research project (84%)<br />Defining a topic (66%)<br />Narrowing the topic (62%)<br />Filtering through irrelevant results (61%)<br />Knowing when they have sufficient information (48%)<br />
    6. 6. “Truth Be Told” Findings<br />Fewer students than expected used Web 2.0 applications to collaborate on or manage research tasks. <br />Google Docs and citation-making software were cited most often. <br />Twitter and blogs were rarely used.<br />
    7. 7. “Truth Be Told” Recommendations<br />Integrate rubric outlining research process into assignment guidelines;<br />Library instruction should be less about resources and more about research and evaluation skills;<br />Instructors should hold students accountable for their research (i.e. require annotated bibliography explaining why resource was used). <br />
