On Google Scholar and library instruction


Table of Contents

On Google Scholar is one of my more consulted RSS feeds. I like the mix of useful pointers and light but firm editorializing.
A post on the recent ACRL conference steps out from this mode a little with a longish commentary. In the light of my comments here about library instruction and eating spinach I was interested in TJ Sonderman’s take on library instruction:

And so in an All Info Lit All the Time model, when students turn up at the desk not being able to locate the books, we call several meetings about ways to infuse LC Classification into our classes and paper the campus about an upcoming emergency book-finding workshop (that no one attends), instead of heading to the stacks to see if the signs make any sense.
