Sarah Karas, Milne Library, published an article titled “Teaching Unprepared” in Instruction Section (v. 34 n. 2), a publication from the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) and the American Library Association. The article focuses on the idea of teaching information literacy instruction sessions in a manner that allows students to engage with the concept of “Searching as Strategic Exploration,” one of the core frames from ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.
James M. Milne library has recently acquired trial subscriptions to four databases: Academic Search Ultimate, Business Source Ultimate, HeinOnline, and Web of Science. These four databases will be available for a limited time only. Access to these databases can be achieved through the Trials tab on the library homepage. A link to a short, five question survey is located next to each database. It would be extremely helpful to the library if the survey was completed after use of one of the trial databases. By completing the survey, we can gather information about the value of the database for our students, faculty, and staff here at SUNY Oneonta. The survey is entirely voluntary. Thank you!
