Embedded Librarian Project
The who, what, when, where, and why...
Bibliographic Instruction Tools
Rationale:Below are the two BI tools I chose to use for this project. I asked several times what would be the biggest help for the students and without response I had to make a choice. So, the first one I created in order to help the students when searching for scholarly articles. After we practiced using the Belk Library in class one evening, I thought this information might also be helpful for my students.
The second tool I created was a step-by-step guided to using Purdue Owl for all their citation needs. Since it was up to the student which citation format they used, Purdue Owl would be beneficial because it has both MLA and APA formatting information.
After sending my evaluation survey I gained feedback from only two of the four students I had. While one student stated they liked the format of the tools, the other student stated "Article links, web sight and data base suggestions would have been preferred."
I also spoke briefly with Lauren and PJ each emailing me about their topics. I told Lauren that if she would email me any questions she had I would do my best to answer them. For PJ, I was actually able to send him several articles and a few books pertaining to his topic. Trying to conduct these interviews via email was harder than I thought they might be.
