E203 - Research Skills: Your School Library Is Better Than Google!

1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Bonsai (Portola Hotel)
Erica Clay, INFOhio Integration Librarian, INFOhio
Gar Sydnor, Vice President of Discovery Innovation, Public Libraries & K12 Schools, EBSCO Information Services

A recent study by EBSCO ties college success to research skills that students develop in grade 9. Students who develop digital research skills early go on to enjoy the confidence to conduct research at a college level. What's more-to the surprise of no librarian-students are most likely to develop the required skills when paired with a librarian. But how does the library make the case for using its resources in a world that's "all Google"? In this session panelists address how librarians can effectively empower students to develop the research skills critical for college success. Panelists showcase how students gain access to vetted information that improves research outcomes. They look at how technology can contribute to teaching research skills and students' ability to learn. And they examine how librarians, educators, and vendors can work together to develop effective library programs.
