Teaching Online Source Evaluation: Going Beyond Craap Using Lateral Reading, Andrea Baer, Daniel G. Kipnis 2020 Rowan University

Teaching Online Source Evaluation: Going Beyond Craap Using Lateral Reading, Andrea Baer, Daniel G. Kipnis

Libraries Scholarship

Lateral reading is the process of initially evaluating a web source by quickly moving off of the web source to see what others say about it. Research on “lateral reading” from the Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) and from Mike Caulfield has informed how many librarians think about teaching source evaluation. In this talk, we will share our experiences in developing a pilot online interactive module about lateral reading strategies.

Gather, Educate, Prepare: Libraries As Champions To Build Informed And Climate-Resilient Communities, Adrian K. Ho, René Tanner, Monika Antonelli

Library Presentations

The past few years have witnessed increasing numbers of discussions and programs about the impacts of climate change, addressing topics from the devastating wildfires in California, relentless heat waves in Europe, to the accelerating thaw of the ice sheet in Greenland. The media has described the social atmosphere using such terms as climate angst, ecological grief, and existential crisis. Weighed down by a steady stream of climate news, some people have sought professional help for guidance on tackling emotional responses to natural disasters and climate trauma. Meanwhile, many of us are wondering what can be done. As a central player ...

Review Of The Future Of Literary Archives, Meghan R. Rinn

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

Improving Access To Standards, Susan B. Wainscott, Richard J. Zwiercan

Library Faculty Publications

Engineers, as well as other professionals, researchers and students in many disciplines, will occasionally need to use standards documents from a wide variety of standards developing organizations. As our university aims to simultaneously increase research productivity and graduation rates, the need for rapid access to full text standards documents will only increase. In the past, most standards were provided by the library in bound, print format, with the exception of digital IEEE standards, just-in-case they were needed. It was, and remains, cost-prohibitive to acquire all of the standards that a public, doctoral-degree-granting university community might need. Several actions were taken ...
