Natural Health Library's insight:

I like the idea in this article when they use  the phrase "‘‘face the college’’ rather than ‘‘face the library;’’ Stephen.

Its early and its looking at the liaison role etc

Great find, Stephen! I'll have a read on the train, Kristie

Gives a good idea of what can be achieved using a collaborative model in an environment with some similiarities to our own. I was also interested in Cornell's idea of students concentrating on one subject/course at a time. Sounds ideas :) Kristie

Project Information Literacy: A large-scale study about early adults and their research habits

Project Information Literacy: A large-scale study about early adults and their research habits | Information Literacy | Scoop.it
Natural Health Library's insight:

Check out this interesting project which focuses on "information literacy competencies through the lens of the student experience". Findings from their six studies since 2008 are summed up in this paper: http://www.ala.org/acrl/sites/ala.org.acrl/files/content/conferences/confsandpreconfs/2013/papers/Head_Project.pdf

Two key findings are that first year college students tend to rely on the same few information regardless of research contexts, and that they underutilize librarians.  Some challenges for our profession to overcome!

Kristie.

PRIMO Database

Natural Health Library's insight:

This instructional database has some great materials we can use/get inspiration for our own information literacy programs.  I thought this would be particularly useful for Maureen to get ideas for the LMS IL course.  Kristie

Do we try to change our users (e.g. by teaching them how to use library databases) or do we make our systems easier to use? Seems to be a lot going on about "usability" recently... Renee

I agree about Discovery tools being a partner for IL. It certainly makes finding articles in particular quicker and easier for students to a certain extent. Kristie

Natural Health Library's insight:

Michael in the "New rules of engagement" presentation outlined the value and importance of storytelling in teaching. It would be great for students to add storytelling into the IL sessions - tricky though im not sure if my past referencing experiences will help people connect with the content.

How To Use a Database

Natural Health Library's insight:

I thought this was a nice general look at how to use a database effectively.  Also uses a little bit of humour.  Loved the Library sock!  Kristie

Embedded librarianship in the research context

Natural Health Library's insight:

This is one of the tasks /roles that Christine and I have been discussing

"An example of embedded librarianship in the research context could be a librarianworking with information resources as they are generated over the course of the research,such as data, to prepare them for dissemina tion beyond the project personnel for re-useby others, or for long-term preservation"Stephen

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this Kristie (and others!) Renee

Natural Health Library's comment, August 29, 2013 6:36 PM
Some thought provoking ideas here! I share the writer's frustration regarding academic emphasis on the adherance to citation style over understanding the value for supporting assertions with well chosen evidence. However, I don't think the two have to be exclusive. By meeting our College's need for referencing education, we can also include discussion on why it's important use evidence. That's certainly what I try to do in my classes and during individual sessions, and I'm sure everyone else does too. Kristie
