Melonee L Slocum's insight:

Wow!  This is cool!  Looked at the correlation between information literacy and education -- since 2004 the United States web search activity has dropped from +3 to -2.  What does it mean?  Take the tutorial!

Ralph Poole's curator insight, March 31, 2014 3:51 PM

Google has  a new Data Mining tool that can be used to mine the search results from all searches since 2003. Currently it only allows you to see correlations using time and location data. We can see it hopefully growing to allow you to search for your own correlations over time with chosen keywords, to allow for more controlled searches.

Ithaka Study Shows Shifting Priorities Among Academic Librarians

Ithaka Study Shows Shifting Priorities Among Academic Librarians | Academic Librarianship | Scoop.it
On March 12, academic research nonprofit Ithaka S+R released its latest survey of academic library leaders. Gathering input from 499 library deans and directors from institutions large and small, the new Library Survey—the first of its kind since 2010—paints a picture of the shifting priorities of modern academic libraries, the challenges they face, and the resources and leadership techniques they’re using to meet those challenges.
Melonee L Slocum's insight:

Shifting priorities to help "undergraduates 'develop research, critical analysis and information literacy skills'".  Professors ahead of librarians in embracing shift to ebooks.  What's our strategy for serving changing user needs?  Do we need to re-evaluate the concept/content of  library instruction?

Situating Information Literacy Within the Curriculum: Using a Rubric to Shape a Program

Situating Information Literacy Within the Curriculum: Using a Rubric to Shape a Program | Academic Librarianship | Scoop.it

Abstract: This article reports on a pilot study to examine undergraduate students’ help-seeking behavior when undertaking library research in online courses. A novel methodology incorporating elements of ethnographic research resulted in a small, but rich and detailed, collection of qualitative data. The data suggest that the methodology has promise for future, larger studies on students in online learning environments. The article includes a detailed discussion of the methodology’s strengths and weaknesses, and offers recommendations for modifications that will improve the research design.
