A103 - Modeling Real Search Skills in Action

1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
San Carlos Ballroom (Marriott)
Tasha Bergson-Michelson, Instructional and Programming Librarian, Castilleja School
Julie Erickson, Learning Specialist, TIE

What is your experience of searching in front of patrons? Do you hope they don’t look at your screen, or wish that you could explain to them why you make the choices you do? We find that people learn search and research skills most frequently by looking over someone else’s shoulder. Thus, it is the job of today’s librarian to explicitly model strong research processes and encourage patrons by recognizing their own search strengths. Join this interactive session to discuss today’s search strategies and practice actively reflecting upon what you actually do that makes search work for you. Find new ways to help learners make these strategies their own, and take away actionable methods you can use in your own environment.
