What are your learning outcomes for this session?
- Familiarizing students with multiple databases
- Introducing students to non-library sources of strong information
- Improving critical reasoning skills in testing reliability
- Understanding reliability
- Efficient use of library database resources

Other notes: I'm hopeful that this doesn't count as quite so last-minute as
my request for WR 227. Still, a week feels like pretty short notice. If this
can't be done, it's entirely my own fault.
