Not enough time in the library
May 14, 2009 at 10:17 AM
The Chronicle of Higher Education has an excellent article, written by Yale librarian Todd Gilman, on how educators need to understand the difference between being computer-literate and research-literate. The article describes how many assume that young students do not need extensive research assistance due to their pervasive interaction with online media. Mr. Gilman details efforts by academic librarians to improve research instruction and how faculty need to realize that interacting with online materials does not translate to creating effective research skills.
