Scott Slattery and I presented our "Literature Review: Content and Process" workshop today to over 100 grad students in Nicholson. More folks had used Google Scholar, Web of Science, Interlibrary Loan, RefWorks, and Google Books than ever before. Not sure if it means anything but it was interesting....

Do you work with a class with high numbers of International students? Add the "Guide" to your LCP page. For example, I just added the Guide for International Students to the WRIT 1301 course (in English, Chinese, and Korean)--I am teaching one of the non-native speaker sections today and realized I should have done this a long time ago.
