ERIAL Project

ERIAL Project | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

The current research from ERIAL tells us that college students really don't know how to search very well.  (No surprise there!) ~ Dennis

 

The Ethnographic Research in Illinois Academic Libraries (ERIAL) Project is a two-year study of the student research process. The project is funded by an LSTA grant awarded to Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) by the Illinois State Library. The goal of the project is to understand how students do research, and how relationships between students, teaching faculty and librarians shape that process. ERIAL is also an applied study—that is, research pursued with the purpose of uncovering, understanding and addressing social problems. As such, its goal is to use the results to develop more user-centered library services.

Youth and Digital Media: From Credibility to Information Quality | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Building upon a process- and context-oriented information quality framework, this paper seeks to map and explore what we know about the ways in which young users of age 18 and under search for information online, how they evaluate information, and how their related practices of content creation, levels of new literacies, general digital media usage, and social patterns affect these activities.

How to Judge if Research is Trustworthy | MindShift

How to Judge if Research is Trustworthy | MindShift | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Scientists are notorious for questioning the veracity of publicized research — and with good reason. They want to know: Who conducted the research? Where was it published? What were the survey questions?]

 

It’s that much more important when it comes to evaluating research in education that will affect the investment decisions of teachers, parents, and administrators.

There exists a study, by Nielsen, explaining that children up to 12 years do not understand searching hence research. Therefore, when designing websites for pre teens, we do not include search in functionality
