Peer Review to open access

Vote 0 Votes
Is the $$ the way to describe peer review? I know that we often talked about the "who" and the "money" when we talk about evaluating websites and sources (e.g. where does Google get its profit?). But this video from SPARC on open access might be another way to go...

Open Access 101, from SPARC from Karen Rustad on Vimeo.

What do you think?

I might also add this to my graduate student orientations next year...I like it.
Check out this interesting new video--

What is the Flipped Classroom?
The flipped classroom inverts traditional teaching methods, delivering instruction online outside of class (aka the lecture) and moving "homework" into the classroom.

Mendeley Videos

Have you been wanting to learn more about Mendeley?  In their most recent newsletter they highlighted there new suite of instructional videos.

Jonathan Koffel also shared this link on the PIM Blog (Personal Information Management).  If you're like me and haven't yet added it to your RSS Feed reader it looks like it's full of good tips and info on tools that might be useful for our instruction.

You can view all the Mendeley Videos on their website.

Great promo with Captivate

I wanted to share Sci/Eng's promo for their new portfolio project: http://blog.lib.umn.edu/fransen/myblog/tutorials/PortfolioProgramIntro.htm


It seems like a very effective way to share information about a program/service in the Libraries!

Also hopefully Jon or Jody (or other librarian) might write a bit more about their program.

I asked my class today to rate themselves in "library research/academic research" skills.

Here is what they think....all closer to novice than expert.
