Instruction Ideas and Activities: Reference

For RIO Librarians to share ideas

Reference Activity -- Eric @ Goshen

For a biology research class I teach a library session which includes, among other things, using reference sources.  I point out a online reference database, AccessScience, and point out how to search and use science related dictionaries and encyclopedias.  Then I follow up with the class completing this activity.  My favorite part of this piece is I get to say "Hey, guess what? You can do these same things when using Wikipedia too!"
