Prezi on WorldCat Discovery -- Denise @ Oakland City U.

I completed a Prezi to help answer some of the student's questions concerning their online use. It occurred to me that someone else might like to see/use it so I am sending you the code to embed it if you think it would be worth sharing for others.

Catalog (WC Discovery) Activity -- Eric @ Goshen

This is a worksheet I pass out after giving a overview of WC Discovery, or what we simply call the catalog.  While it is a review of the mechanics of the discovery layer, the students also practice using boolean operators and developing keywords in research.

Catalog Activity -- WC Discovery -- "social media and marketing"
