2019 Workshop Series
Library Resources: From Databases to DVDs
Facilitated by Dr. Patricia Coward
Tuesday, March 12th at 3:30 PM
In the Library Resource Center Classroom
On March12th, 2019, Dr. Patricia Coward conducted a workshop where participants explored emerging digital resources for student research. Library databases have been a common resource supplied by academic libraries for at least a decade. But newer digital collections provide students with video and curated document sets ideal for promoting classroom or online conversations surrounding justice, public policy, scientific debates, or ethics.
A central, cross-disciplinary problem for academics is information literacy. Workshop participants discussed the challenges and options for promoting good source discovery and evaluation practices among students.
