  • How you can help them and how they can find you – leads into the ISEMP introduction
  • This can be amended to reflect a specific assignment they are working towards or that information could be added verbally.
  • Discuss the above as the two principle ways to find information through the library. Direct students to go the LRC homepage to get started. Proceed with search examples without additional slides.
  • Segway – The Library provides lots of print and online information that can be classed as “better” information: published, edited, scholarly, sometimes peer-reviewed. Google is great for finding the free stuff, and we’ve seen that there can be quality info found through a search for free information. But the library specializes in providing more information to you – the kind that usually you have to pay for.

  • Telecom wireless network capacity Narrow Source Type Date
  • Do a quick search for your question, together. Have students look at the first page of results and see if they intuitively know the best from the worst (this can be just by the names of the links and their domain suffixes, or you could pick one or two (one good, one bad) and present the question openly (“Do you think this website is trustworthy, or not? Why or why not? Think about it and then we’ll discuss it.”). You could also do this with preselected websites which you lead students to with links. After the open discussion, present the CAARS/CRAAP acronym to fill in additional considerations. Could also do this in reverse, using the CAARS evaluation tool up front [depends on timing and audience]

    6. 6. ONLINE DATABASES andLibrary Discovery Individual Databases Discovery Search• Databases are usually organized • Searches majority of LRC’s by major subject i.e. nursing, databases all at once business, etc • Benefit: you just search—simple• Benefit: use advanced search and convenient tools to find millions of • Detriment: You don’t get the trustworthy, subject-specific specific treatment and advanced resources Detriment: you have to search capabilities of individual choose and search multiple databases. databases• Use your Research Guide to discover these!
