Short video

I see from Martin De Saulles' blog (Brighton University) that he and Jackie Chelin (University of the West of England) have produced a video Beyond Google: Developing Training Skills for Library and Information Students in Their Work With the Google Generation . "The video outlines, through interviews with academics, librarians and students, some of the issues surrounding how students use the Internet as a research tool." It was funded by the Higher Education Academy. It is on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIZNkKLssqM One quote from an academic is "It's one of those difficult terms, because everybody thinks it's a good thing, and everybody thinks someone else should be addressing it head on." - which tallies with "teaching information literacy is someone else's job" conception we identified in our research.
