Resources

HELP OPTIONS FOR THE TOOL

  • Most tools have a Help/FAQ/How do I menu that can provide very helpful information

YOUTUBE 

  • Include the name of the tool or program, and perhaps even the year released
  • Be specific about what you are trying to accomplish
  • Pay attention to related videos 

SLIDESHARE (technology cateogory)

  • Similar to videos, but they allow you to click and go at your own pace

LIBGUIDES COMMUNITY SITE 

  • See if someone has created a LibGuide about your tech topic/tool

LIMIT YOUR GOOGLE SEARCH

  • Add "site:.edu" to your google searches to limit to sites from academic institutions. This helps bring up library/IT sites that have more of an education purpose than most commercial or review sites

1 - CLOSE THE LOOP WITH YOUR PATRON

  • Make sure they have resources and/or your contact information to help answer further questions

2 - BOOKMARK, NOTE, ETC

  • Keep track of what you learned. Put your reflection/summary in some place that can be searchable later. 

3 - SHARE YOUR KNOWLEDGE

  • If you think others would benefit from knowing this tool or the answer to a particular question, make sure you share!
