Note the Distance Education angle in this upcoming Webinar from Serials Solutions:
“Start with Summon” is what novice and experience researchers at Royal Roads University hear. Easy for novices and great for experienced researchers conducting interdisciplinary searches, the Summon service exposes students to many things they might not otherwise find. How are students introduced to Summon? A database ‘Hackfest’ where students perform the same tasks with different search tools and then evaluate the weaknesses and strengths of each tool.
The fourth session in our Information Literacy series, Jessica Mussell and Rosie Croft describe how the research for their paper "Discovery Layers and the Distance Student: Online Search Habits of Students" informed their decision to offer this unique approach to information literacy.
