Meeting Them Halfway: Using YouTube in a First Year Information Fluency Program

PRESENTERS:
Beth Hillemann and Aaron Albertson, Reference and Instruction Librarians, Macalester College

SESSION DESCRIPTION:
First year college students are used to gathering information through resources such as YouTube and Google. They need to learn about the approach scholars take to disciplinary inquiry. We designed a standardized session that asked students to critically evaluate a message conveyed through a YouTube video. In the session, they used library and network resources to produce a short bibliography of academic articles and books on the topic.
