The Covid-19 Misinformation Challenge: Asynchronous Learning About (And During!) A Pandemic, Jennifer Bonnet, Senta Sellers Oct 2020

The Covid-19 Misinformation Challenge: Asynchronous Learning About (And During!) A Pandemic, Jennifer Bonnet, Senta Sellers

New England Library Instruction Group

In early 2020, the coronavirus pandemic ushered in a “new normal.” During this time, the world witnessed a prevalence of misinformation about COVID-19, on social media, in the news, and in academic publishing. We saw this emerging landscape as an opportunity to help people think critically about ways to combat false or misleading information. The result: The COVID-19 Misinformation Challenge.

Each day for five days, participants received tasks designed to test their knowledge of the coronavirus. They evaluated memes, doctors, news headlines, treatments, and some of the science behind the virus.

Join us for an interactive tour of the challenge ...

Creating a (Bright)Space for Library Instruction

Students come into class with varied levels of preparation for college-level research. Faculty had little time to spare for library instruction prior to COVID 19, and the move to online instruction has left them with even less time.

As these things were happening across higher education, the University of Maine system was changing learning management systems, leading to a steep learning curve for everyone. The University of Southern Maine Libraries saw an opportunity to address these challenges and remain visible to faculty.

The reference librarians created a series of information literacy modules for ...

Urban Warfare: Emerging Geopolitical Conundrum, Bert Chapman Aug 2020

Urban Warfare: Emerging Geopolitical Conundrum, Bert Chapman

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

Urban warfare is as old as human history. It is becoming increasingly important in international political and military planning due to increasing global urbanization and the presence of megacities (urban areas with populations exceeding 10 million) in many global regions and being in areas of recent and potential military conflict. 2018 World Bank data notes that approximately 56% of the world's population lives in urban areas which is up from 34% in 1960. Many of these megacities, including New York City, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, Mumbai, Shanghai, and Manila are adjacent to oceanic waters and vulnerable to trade and ...

Congressional Committee Resources On Space Policy During The 115th Congress (2017-2018): Providing Context And Insight Into Us Government Space Policy, Bert Chapman

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

Article 1 of the US Constitution assigns the US Congress numerous responsibilities. These include creating new laws, revising existing laws, funding government programs, and conducting oversight of these programs' performance. Oversight of US Government agency space policy programs is executed by various congressional space policy committees including the House and Senate Science Committees, Armed Services, and Appropriations Committees. These committees conduct many public hearings on space policy, which invite expert witnesses to testify on US space policy programs and feature debate on the strengths and weaknesses of these programs.

Citations As Expressions Of Fairness, Helpfulness, And Decorum, Drew Nathaniel Keane Feb 2020

Citations As Expressions Of Fairness, Helpfulness, And Decorum, Drew Nathaniel Keane

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Much of the literature on academic integrity focuses on misconduct; there is little discussion of what constitutes ethical academic practice (Macfarlane, Zhang, Pun (2014); Blum (2009); East and Donnelly (2012)). I argue for teaching ethical use of sources in terms of three social values that are expressed in context-specific aways: fairness, helpfulness, and decorum. I interrogate a number of examples to show how each of these values is necessary to make sense out of academic citation practice. Though we know concepts of originality, textual ownership, and citation are complex and differ across contexts, media, and cultures, plagiarism is still widely ...


Using Curriculum Mapping To Develop An Acrl Framework-Centered Information Literacy Instruction Program At Georgetown’S School Of Continuing Studies Library, Ladislava Khailova Feb 2020

Did It Work?: The Effects Of Research Consultations On The Quality Of Sources Used In An Undergraduate Class., Jennifer Maddox, Leigh Stanfield Feb 2020

Did It Work?: The Effects Of Research Consultations On The Quality Of Sources Used In An Undergraduate Class., Jennifer Maddox, Leigh Stanfield

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Do individual research consultations with a librarian affect the quality of sources undergraduates cite in research papers? This presentation examines the results of a study conducted by librarians to assess that question. The hypothesis was that students who participate in research consultations show an improvement in the type and quality of sources cited in their research papers.

There is a large body of research on the use of citation analysis by librarians for various purposes. This study compared the quality of citations used by two sections of an upper level education class. The same instructor taught both sections during two ...


The Effectiveness Of Library Instruction For Graduate/Professional Students: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Adelia B. Grabowsky, Liza J. Weisbrod Feb 2020

The Effectiveness Of Library Instruction For Graduate/Professional Students: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis, Adelia B. Grabowsky, Liza J. Weisbrod

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Library instruction to improve information literacy (IL) is often considered essential only for undergraduates. However, students in graduate/professional programs do not always have the requisite skills needed for graduate level study and research, which suggests they may also benefit from library instruction targeted specifically to graduate students. This study used a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the effectiveness of library instruction for increasing IL skills and/or knowledge among graduate and professional students. The authors searched seven databases to identify studies published in English between 2000 and 2019 that reported on library instruction for graduate or professional students ...


Bring Yourself And Relevant Resources To Them: Becoming Embedded Online To Support Students In Your Liaison Area, Josette M. Kubicki Feb 2020

Bring Yourself And Relevant Resources To Them: Becoming Embedded Online To Support Students In Your Liaison Area, Josette M. Kubicki

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

“Build it and they will come” is a common approach for academic libraries for providing research support to their community. Like many academic libraries, Reese Library at Augusta University creates online tools to guide students in information literacy development and research, such as library guides and video tutorials; and offers support services, “Ask a Librarian” service and “Contact Your Liaison Librarian”. Providing access through the library website, promoting them via marketing, library instruction, and orientation sessions, we hope that the students we inform peruse such tools and seek assistance when needed. Although some do, but many do not.

The presentation ...


Honoring The Il Frame Of Creation In The Honors Ba Thesis, Amy J. Harris, Kathy F. Kempa Feb 2020

Honoring The Il Frame Of Creation In The Honors Ba Thesis, Amy J. Harris, Kathy F. Kempa

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Approximately 75% of honors programs have thesis or capstone requirements (Savage & Cognard-Black, 2016). Seeing the need to provide structure, scaffolding and guidance for these undergraduates, librarians created a course, Introduction to the Honors Thesis, as a required course for 2nd semester Juniors in the Honors Program. In the course the frames of “Searching as Strategic Exploration” and “Information Creation as a Process” are taught. Students then demonstrate these frames through writing reflection papers, “source annotation” papers, and writing a prospectus. This includes an Introduction and Literature review to provide a solid foundation for the Senior level course Thesis Writing ...

How U.S. Government Policy Documents Are Addressing The Increasing National Security Implications Of Artificial Intelligence, Bert Chapman

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

Artificial intelligence is affecting many areas of our lives and governmental policy. National security is one arena in which artificial intelligence is playing an increasingly important and controversial role. U.S. Government and military agencies are producing a steadily expanding corpus of publicly available literature on this topic. This literature documents how these agencies have this topic's national security implications historically and currently while also addressing potentially emerging national security issues where artificial intelligence will intersect with national security.

Libraries Curating Evidence, Pru Mitchell Sep 2019

Libraries Curating Evidence, Pru Mitchell

Pru Mitchell

With their passion for information literacy and critical thinking, library staff are natural advocates for evidence–based practice. The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers require knowledge and understanding of research across all career stages (Standard 1.2). If the role of the library is to ensure the community has the resources and knowledge it needs to improve learning, then an important part of this role is to ensure teachers and leaders have access to research related to learning. This session looks at how to keep up with research (especially ICT-related research) and to see dissemination of research as part of ...

I Search: A Reflection On The Importance Of A Personal Connection, Eric Shannon, Leslie Inglis, Tracy Mendham Jun 2019

I Search: A Reflection On The Importance Of A Personal Connection, Eric Shannon, Leslie Inglis, Tracy Mendham

New England Library Instruction Group

This session, led by two librarians and an adjunct faculty member, described the benefits of replacing a traditional research paper with an I Search paper (a more informal first person research narrative) for students taking a first year inquiry course. An I Search paper facilitates student learning by encouraging students to select a topic that piques their interest and places the focus on students’ personal research journeys. Although this assignment was designed for a semester-long credit-bearing course, we discussed ways to incorporate aspects of this assignment into a library one-shot.

No Zombies Here!​: An Inquiry-Based Learning Approach To An Embedded Librarian Project, Sam Boss, Kristi J. Castleberry

New England Library Instruction Group

Since 2017, a library director and English professor have been collaborating on an embedded librarian project for a required Critical Thinking seminar. Our guiding concept is inquiry-based learning, and we have seen students connect with information literacy more deeply as we encourage them to explore information resources and to consider what scholarly conversation means to them. Our goal is to seamlessly blend elements of the ACRL Framework with the learning objectives and content of the seminar through hands-on activities related to research and writing assignments. Tying the Framework to ongoing projects has resulted in a higher level of engagement and ...
