Ic @ Ghc: Innovative Strategies For Increasing Student Information Competency Without Breaking The Budget, Meredith Ginn, Leslie Johnson, Travice Obas, Cindy Wheeler

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Innovative Strategies That Won’t Break Your Budget Information Competency at Georgia Highlands College (IC @ GHC) is a curriculum-wide plan implemented at a two-year college to increase student information competency levels. This presentation will discuss strategies which allowed the college to successfully meet the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) requirements of SACS through the use of innovative assessment and implementation measures which garnered enthusiastic faculty involvement and also managed to stay within a first year, $14,000 shoe-string budget.

A Web-Based Bulletin Board As Edward Soja's "Thirdspace": Esl And Lgbtq Students Claim Home Turf, Li Gaoqing, Patricia T. Price, Pauline Wilkins Burton, Reuben Hayslett

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

We argue that all knowledge begins with the body, the physical space it occupies and the territory an individual defines as “home.” The taken-for-granted nature of this reality is disrupted by the experience of moving into a new cultural space, whether this space is defined physically or in discursive terms. Cultural space is an extension of personal identity, both the physical circumstances through which individual consciousness is shaped, and the conceptual connections through which individuals construct a vantage point in the world. The students whose writing we examine were from an ESL class in first-year composition and an upper-division class ...

Cultivating Career Literacy: Facilitating The Most Important Research Project Your Students Will Ever Face, Kristin Stout, Barbara Macke

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Choosing the right career path and learning the steps necessary to take that path will likely be the most important independent research project your students undertake, especially in the current economic climate. The library is an invaluable resource for students who are exploring potential career paths or currently seeking employment. Unlike individual academic departments, the library is an institution-wide resource with the ability to reach students from all subject areas and education levels. Librarians are uniquely positioned to collaborate across the grain of university, college, and high school communities by offering resources to support the career search of all students ...

Creating A Library Research Prize To Reward And Encourage Information Literacy, Ray Bailey, Helen Beaven Sep 2009

Creating A Library Research Prize To Reward And Encourage Information Literacy, Ray Bailey, Helen Beaven

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Student research papers and other similar projects have traditionally been the “bread and butter” of academic libraries. Even in this digital age, the campus library remains the best place to find appropriate resources for these projects, as well as for getting necessary assistance with the scholarly research process. It is an ongoing challenge for academic libraries to make this fact known to the campus community, and to find novel ways to entice students to utilize the library and all it has to offer, rather than depending on less reliable sources. To encourage our students to perform academic research and writing ...

Yes, Virginia, There Are Full-Text Articles In That Bound Periodical!: Helping Students Make Connections About Locating Journal Articles, Camille Mccutcheon, Michael W. Wilson

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

The overall theme of the program concerns the methods of instruction librarians are using to teach basic information about the following: journal formats, such as current, bound, microfilm, and electronic; elements of journal citations, such as publication date, volume numbers, and issue numbers; and why it is essential for students to understand this information in order to locate articles in print and electronic formats. The presenters will discuss their experiences and active learning activities used to introduce journal formats, the elements of journal citations, and journal locator tools, such as EBSCO A to Z and SFX, during library instruction sessions ...


Citation Generators: Helpmate Or Hindrance In The Information Literacy Classroom?, Shaunna E. Hunter, Lizabeth A. Rand Sep 2009

Citation Generators: Helpmate Or Hindrance In The Information Literacy Classroom?, Shaunna E. Hunter, Lizabeth A. Rand

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

In our ever-expanding digital culture, citation generators are becoming increasingly popular sites for student-researcher-writers whose professors require specific, and often, different, citation styles as part of the assignments that they give. Citation generators are, in effect, “workhorses,” performing one of the more tedious aspects required of the researcher-writer; that is, the need for him or her to convey, accurately, and, in fact, precisely, a “record” of his or her information for others to consult. Jane Kessler and Mary K. Van Ullen, library scholars and authors of “Citation Generators: Generating Bibliographies for the Next Generation,” echo this sentiment, partly, pointing out ...

Active Scholarship: Integrating Research And Writing In The Extensible Classroom, Sara Steger, Robin Waharton, Laura Adams Weaver, Caroline Cason Barratt

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

The proliferation of digital media has created a need for college instructors to cultivate in students the skills required to navigate and participate effectively within an information- and communication-rich environment. In addition, digital technologies open up new opportunities for integrating research-intensive instruction specifically designed to incorporate information literacy into the core curriculum. This panel will discuss a pedagogical experiment in which we created an “eXtensible” classroom that integrated a number of institutional resources. Our team worked with the instructor of record for an upper-division course to develop a support model that encouraged students to engage in “active scholarship.” Beginning with ...
