ECER 2008 - the Web as Information Source

Live blog from a session at ECER 2008.

Presented by Chiara Ravagni from the University Of Bolzano / Bozen, Italy.

Report from a librarian on a study of how to support student searches of the Internet. She started by collecting information on how her students search the Internet. Her hope is to help students improve their search techniques. For example, use of Boolean and other advanced search techniques. However, also interest in teaching them how to use the information they find (including basics such as how to reference).
