Resources Contributed

This resource was designed as a jumping-off point for discussions between librarians and peer tutors who work outside of the library, specifically undergraduate subject-specific and writing tutors. Tutors are asked to examine ACRL framework by considering a learning objective and a brief related video. Videos were created by North Kentucky University's Steely Library. 
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.
