Open Access Graduate Research Paper


"Finding Information in the Information Age" is a workshop designed for teachers, librarians, and administrations to bridge the gap between the recognized need for and the actual implementation of teaching information skills within the context of the curriculum. Topics covered during the 15 hours of instruction include designing a good research assignment, preparing students for research through presearch activities, using an online public access catalog and periodical database, searching and evaluating web sites, using and evaluating reference CD-ROMS, and searching Electric Library, Wilson databases, FirstSearch, and the State of Iowa Libraries Online (SILO). Workshop participants experience the first three stages of the information skills process themselves and apply the skills they learn to a unit they are teaching or are planning to teach in their classrooms.
