Wow, it’s been a while since I did one of these. As we move into the Winter Break season, here are some links to enjoy/bookmark/get inspiration from.
Books, Reading, etc.
- The Cybils are always a good RA tool, and now they have playlists! What could be better to share with students?
- Yes, this is a couple of years old, but Angie’s book rec work is timeless (and inspirational). NYPL has great ideas, too.
- We know Wikipedia isn’t all bad, and CrashCourse has a series showing how to use it effectively. There’s also Fake Believe Blog, all about disinformation.
- Thinking about how to introduce the new students to the library and basic skills? Nancy did a wonderful hybrid class and I’m plotting how to adapt it.
- Internet Live Stats might be a good way to create datasets and draw conclusions based on real world news/events.
- So many of my colleagues have exit polls for their assignments. Here’s a great way to add them to a GoogleSlide lesson (thinking of doing this during Research Season)
- It’s Milton’s 225th “birthday” and I’d love to do a digital history like this with our students.
- Digitizing material isn’t as easy as you’d think. Just look at NYPL’s workflow.
- How have I lived without Folder Maker?
- If you have a JSTOR subscription, their collection of maps of the US (housed at the University of Michigan) is wonderfully full of information and trivia about the states and the people.
- If you’re looking for the right form, JotForms may have it. I’m also thinking of printing my own Post-It notes.
