This is a handout I shared with students in a senior seminar class. I introduced students to the concept "Research as Inquiry" and showed them different things they could do that are part of this frame. The handout helped me introduce topics I had not included in instruction work before. Many students in the class visited me during a research consultation and I felt like they were better prepared for that meeting .

Information Literacy Frame(s) Addressed: Research as Inquiry
The goal of this in-class activity is to help students relate database searching to something they already have familiarity with. This is interdisciplinary and could be adapted for any subject or database. Students will explore a timely topic on Twitter using a hashtag and note bias, tone, authority, and related hashtags before conducting a similar search on a library database or discovery tool. Students and instructors then discuss similarities and differences between both searches and their results.

Deciding who to vote for can be hard. On top of that, finding information about local elections can sometimes be difficult, as can be figuring out if you agree with a candidate on an issue that you don’t know too much about. This activity engages students in the civic process and in research. Students will use internet searching to find information about candidates, and database searching to find information out about an issue.
