Online Information Literacy: Creating Effective Search Strategies
In the latest Pew Internet & American Life Project Report, How Teens Do Research in the Digital World, 94% of students and 91% of adults turn to Google or another online search engine as the first place for research. Working with AskMN, Minnesota’s 24/7 statewide cooperative digital reference service, I have found that the point at which users go to AskMN for help in finding information is after they have tried and were unsuccessful in finding useful, appropriate, and/or credible information themselves. In this session we’ll look at the successful techniques AskMN librarians employ to help students with their research.
