why do i still teach online searching
WHY DO I STILL TEACH ONLINE SEARCHING?
  • Who needs to be taught about searching when there is Google?
  • The butcher, the baker the candle-stick maker are all searching
  • What are they finding? What are they missing?
  • Convenience above content
  • "Good enough + convenient enough" thinking
  • How do you choose your classes?
  • To make you more efficient than your patrons
  • To make you a FINDER

what i teach about online searching
WHAT I TEACH ABOUT ONLINE SEARCHING?
  • Google is great, warm, fuzzy and sensitive
  • So are Bing, Ask, GigaBlast, ExaLead (and so were AltaVista, FAST, Excite)
  • Google is not a panacea
  • Google Scholar – the good, the bad, the ugly and the dysfunctional
  • The invisible part of the Web
  • The value of proprietary POIS

Jacsó

google not panacea
Google NOT Panacea -
  • Realize the problems with Googling the assignment questions
  • My humble efforts to grill Google - a teachable moment - or two
  • Google is great, long live Google, but no monotheistic adulation
  • Libraries pay millions for digital books, journals & finding tools
  • Use them & Google, but count your clicks and peeks
  • Not just a question of natural vs. controlled vocabulary searching
  • No truncation, field specific indexes for author, journal name
  • Few proximity ops, filters by date, doc type

Jacso

google not panacea1
- Google NOT Panacea
  • Sloppy Links (I plead guilty)
  • Volatile locations
  • Perishable, vanishing references
  • Link-rot
  • Partial solution – DOI
  • More about DOI later

what are important
What are important?
  • Use of controlled vocabulary - with skepticism
  • Boolean operations (don't cringe now)
  • The joy of natural language searching
  • Search Strategy Building
  • Browsing, browsing, browsing
  • Searching, thinking, re-searching, re-thinking, finding
  • Word-based searching versus citation searching
  • Your smart and pretty output
  • Linking is everything
  • System and databases selection (putting the cart before the horse?)

why i don t teach dialog in 663
- WHY I DON'T TEACH DIALOG IN 663?
  • Internships do not require it at UH
  • So LIS 663 is new and improved
  • The power and ease of Ebsco, ProQuest/CSA, FirstSearch, Gale
  • The transportability of your knowledge
  • Post-course practicing possibility
  • Dialog is now in 667 – seldom taught

Jacsó

be ambidextrous
BE AMBIDEXTROUS
  • Information searching
  • Behavior of Millennials
  • Google for everything attitude
  • You “don’t get no respect”?
  • Work on it
  • Use and show the power and advantages of POIS
