E204: If You Must Google, Then Google Well!—Website Evaluation for H.S. and College Researchers

2:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Cara Berg, Reference Librarian, Co-Coordinator of User Education, William Paterson University

While we would love our students to use library resources all the time, we know they often run to Google. At the Cheng Library at William Paterson University, students are told that Google is fine for some—not all—research, but that part of using Google well is evaluating the websites they find. In this session, Cara Berg covers how they teach and assess website evaluation to first year students at WPU. This same lesson has been successfully used for high school students as well! The assessment, methodology, and history of this assignment are discussed and current results from the past semester are shared.
