http://www.pcc.edu/library/sites/default/files/webform/assignments/scavenger.pdf

What are your learning outcomes for this session?
- Familiarizing students with multiple databases

- Improving critical reasoning skills in testing reliability
- Understanding reliability
- Efficient use of library database resources
- use of third party watchdogs like the Annenberg Classroom to test
non-library materials.
Other notes: As is, I fear, too often the case, I'm making this request with
too little lead time. I'm simultaneously checking with Jeff Wilson in case
the library instruction room is unavailable. (Or, if coming in with so little
warning, I'm just simply out of luck, prima facie.) So, what I'm saying is
that if I can't get into the library tomorrow, it's entirely my own fault.

Assignment description and sample topics:
Information Literacy project. I will have introduced the project, but
students will need instruction in appropriate topics for research (briefly),
how to perform searches, and resources available. I want them to consider the
credibility of their sources as well. Plus, any other related instruction is
always appreciated! I can send the assignment to the librarian ahead of time.
In fact, I may send an early version for suggestions before finalizing it. I
am not attaching the docs now, because this is pretty far out and I haven't
finalized the assignment yet. I generally require an annotated bibliography
as the final product, but I want them to go through the steps as though they
were going to write a research paper.

Let me know if you have any questions! And I'm happy to hear any suggestions.
Thank you!

the closer we come to the date. I'll update you a week out.

Students will probably not have used the library database before, so
introduction to this as well as how to search Google affectively will be
important to cover in the library instruction. Thanks!
