Podcasts for Information Literacy: Database Overview (part 1)

Database Introduction:

Here is an overview of what the
Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals has to offer. This podcast is meant to be used in conjunction with other information literacy training, lectures and exercises. The script was created by Shannon Van Kirk, MLIS and read by Regina Roberts, Student in MLIS program at San Jose State University. Technical Assistance including the editing was provided by Patrick Kammermeyer.

In this forum (blog), this podcast is meant to be yet another example of how libraries and librarians can use podcasting to deliver content to their clients.

Podcasts for Information Literacy : Searching Tips (part 2)

Keyword vs. Subject Heading Searches:

The next podcast is a follow-up session on the difference between "Keyword" searching and "Subject" searching. Again this is an example of how librarians can incorporate the use of sound files in their delivery of information literacy content.

As with the previous podcast the content was developed by Shannon Van Kirk, the voice is Regina Roberts and editing was done by Patrick Kammermeyer. A team effort.
