Learning How to Fish at the Internet Research Workshop

You may have noticed that I haven't posted anything for the last few days. I was out of the library teaching a workshop on Internet Research in Wisconsin. We had a very good group and most of them were excited to learn about new research resources and techniques. One gentleman even thanked us at the end for "teaching him how to fish" per the old "if you give a man a fish" wisdom. Several others commented that it was an eye-opening experience.

By co-teacher was Bev Butula, an amazing reference librarian from Davis & Kuelthau in Milwaukee. Let me tell you that the students weren't the only ones who learned a thing or two. Bev demonstrated a handful of resources that were new to me, too. Over the course of the next few days, I'll be sharing them with you.
