Information Literacy in the Age of Web-Scale Discovery
- Information Literacy in the Age of Web-Scale Discovery: “Fast Track and Summon” at BGSULength: 73 minutesRecorded on: 27 September 2012 09:30File size: 37.6 MB
Calling all reference and research instruction librarians! As libraries adopt discovery services they are finding that the impact of introducing this new technology spans far beyond the normal updating of instruction materials, websites, research guides. Web-scale discovery provides an opportunity for libraries to re-think and re-tool their research instruction to focus less on “searching” and more on helping students evaluate results and develop critical thinking skills.
In this webinar series, librarians around the globe will share how they are integrating the Summon service into information literacy and research instruction at their own institutions. Attendees will be exposed to ideas, instruction materials, and best-practices to incorporate into your own reference and research instruction programs. Opportunities to contribute to the discussion and ask questions will be provided.
In our first session, Amy Faye Fyn, Formerly Reference and Instruction Librarian at Bowling Green State University (BGSU), Ohio, USA, will share knowledge and tips gained from her “Fast Track and Summon” workshop developed for the University’s Center for Teaching and Learning. This workshop introduced instructors to ways they can incorporate the Summon service into their research instruction and on how Summon can assist students to become more “research-savvy.”
- Making Research Less OverwhelmingLength: 77 minutesRecorded on: 07 March 2013 10:33File size: 41.4 MB
The “research center” model used at the University of Denver keeps librarians there quite busy with over 1,000 consultations and more than 300 course-integrated and co-curricular research workshops per year. Shifting paradigms is how Carrie Forbes characterizes the impact on instruction after introducing the Summon service. No matter how it’s described, from an undergraduate exclaiming the Summon service “[M]akes research less overwhelming!” to a graduate student observing “It will save me so much time!” it’s apparent that discovery is positively affecting the research experience.
In this session of our Information Literacy series, Carrie shares how the Summon service creates time to focus on big concepts with undergraduates and helps graduate students with interdisciplinary research.
- Move Beyond Perceptions and “Get on Board”: Information Literacy in the Age of Web-Scale DiscoveryLength: 77 minutesRecorded on: 11 October 2012 09:29File size: 42.9 MB
In their paper “The Impact of Serial Solutions’ Summon on Information Literacy Instruction: Librarian Perceptions”, Stefanie Buck and Margaret Mellinger of Oregon State University Libraries reflect that libraries are just beginning to examine and embrace the change in library instruction brought on by adoption of web-scale discovery. In their own experience, the Summon service allows them to spend more time on teaching the research process and evaluating information since they are spending less time focusing on teaching interfaces.
In this third session of our Information Literacy series, Stefanie and Margaret share how to “get people on board” and move beyond first impressions to help instruction librarians gain an understanding of what web-scale discovery is and the benefits for them and their users.
- Reducing Friction: Information Literacy in the Age of Web-Scale DiscoveryLength: 71 minutesRecorded on: 18 October 2012 06:34File size: 46.1 MB
According to Matt Borg, historically information literacy sessions focused too much on content and not enough on the process of discovery. This is no longer the case at Sheffield Hallam University where they are moving away from interfaces that only librarians know how to search to those intuitive to students. As facilitators of learning, he advocates that libraries need to move away from clutter into clarity.
The fifth session in our Information Literacy series, Matt illuminates how a unique approach to understanding the difference between how librarians and students approach discovery helped his library reduce friction and make the journey easy for the students.
- Relationship Building Leads to Research SuccessLength: 75 minutesRecorded on: 28 February 2013 10:33File size: 41.8 MB
Implementing the Summon service at Case Western Reserve University was about more than adding a discovery service to the library’s offerings, it is a key component in the library’s new service model. Rolled out concurrently with phasing out the formal reference desk, students and front-line library staff rely on Summon—prominently featured in LibGuides as well as a completely re-designed website—to get started. That gives the librarians time to go where the users are and build relationships with faculty.In this session of our Information Literacy series, Brian Gray shares how being “on call” and “out and about” is helping Case Western’s librarians connect with users and provide more in-depth instruction.
- Teaching “Everything”Length: 72 minutesRecorded on: 13 March 2013 10:37File size: 44.9 MB
Wake Forest University has made it clear to users where to start their search for library resources, their tabbed search interface place prominently on the library homepage defaults to search “Everything,” their implementation of the Summon service. Working with classes and one-on-one with students and faculty, Roz Tedford helps them move beyond search and really understand the research process.
In this session of our Information Literacy series, Roz shares how she meets the challenge to teach “Everything” in her Information Literacy classes.
- Using Data to Improve Instruction: Information Literacy in the Age of Web-Scale DiscoveryLength: 74 minutesRecorded on: 07 November 2012 09:33File size: 39.3 MB
Unfortunately, Roz Tedford of Wake Forest University will not be able to share her thoughts on Teaching "Everything." We're happy to have Beth German from the University of Houston step in to share her view on the connection between user data and information literacy.
The University of Houston Library’s’ “digital front door” prominently features OneSearch—their branded version of the Summon service which is also integrated throughout the library website. UH makes extensive use of Data and transaction logs for Summon which, like at many libraries, are used to make website design decisions. However, at the University of Houston data analytics are also used to help inform instruction librarians and generate discovery service “buy-in” among library staff.
In the seventh session in our Information Literacy series, Beth German shares how she uses discovery service data analytics to help inform and support library instruction.
- “Just give me 10 minutes…” Information Literacy in the Age of Web-Scale DiscoveryLength: 59 minutesRecorded on: 04 October 2012 06:45File size: 31.8 MB
“Just give me 10 minutes and I can show your students how to find quality resources,” is Alison Sharman’s pitch to academics at the University of Huddersfield. With only 10 minutes needed to cover the basics of searching the Summon service, she can spend the rest of the session concentrating on information literacy. Alison finds that using the Summon service introduces students to key databases through clicking on results and gives them the confidence they’ll need to tackle searching the key subject databases they’ll need later on in their studies.
In this second session of our Information Literacy series, hear how Alison has transformed her instructional sessions from a chorus of yawns to bevy of interactive demos.
- “Start with Summon”: Information Literacy in the Age of Web-Scale DiscoveryLength: 77 minutesRecorded on: 16 October 2012 09:27File size: 56.8 MB
“Start with Summon” is what novice and experience researchers at Royal Roads University hear. Easy for novices and great for experienced researchers conducting interdisciplinary searches, the Summon service exposes students to many things they might not otherwise find. How are students introduced to Summon? A database ‘Hackfest’ where students perform the same tasks with different search tools and then evaluate the weaknesses and strengths of each tool.
The fourth session in our Information Literacy series, Jessica Mussell and Rosie Croft describe how the research for their paper "Discovery Layers and the Distance Student: Online Search Habits of Students" informed their decision to offer this unique approach to information literacy.
- “Teaching Summon for First Year Students": Information Literacy in the Age of Web-Scale DiscoveryLength: 71 minutesRecorded on: 24 October 2012 14:28File size: 47.1 MB
It doesn’t always take anything particularly clever or advanced to really make an impact. Often, persistence and prevalence is the key to making a lasting impression. At Charles Darwin University, they incorporate the Summon service into first year instruction, making certain that students know it’s a trusted place to go for research.
The sixth session in our Information Literacy series, Barbara Coat shares how usage of the Summon service in instruction at CDU helps students learn about library resources and critical concepts behind effective search.
