Your Resource for Information Literacy
JSTOR is a digital library of academic journals, books, and primary sources and has been named “Best Overall Database” by Library Journal. Looking at data collected from our users, we found that students cite articles from JSTOR more than any other database. Because of this we’ve decided to work with JSTOR to allow our users to quickly search and cite articles hosted on their database.Read More
You’ve heard the terms Generation X and Generation Y, but Generation Plagiarism? Copy and paste Generation? Unfortunately, these are all common terms floating around to describe today’s youth. According to a New York Times Upfront article, “47 percent of high school students admitted to copying and pasting from the Web, with nearly one third saying they didn’t consider it cheating.” Pretty crazy, right? So how do we combat this problem? Here’s an idea: teach these young kiddos about citations and plagiarism. Start them early! In our information era, it needs to happen. And EasyBib can help!Read More
Where are your students going to do their research? I have a feeling that most of you would say Google. But what are your students getting from searching with Google? Well, a few things: advertisements, a mixture of credible and not credible sources, sources that might be to hard for your students to read… I probably don’t need to list them all. We all have a little bit of a love/hate relationship with Google, am I right?
For students who are prone to Googling everything, including research for class assignments, SweetSearch can help. SweetSearch is a search engine created especially for students by Dulcinea Media, the creators of findingDulcinea.
SweetSearch’s staff of librarians and educators have sifted through the the open web to find quality, credible sources that are appropriate for your students — many of the top search results come from PBS, the Smithsonian, and university websites.
We are excited to announce that EasyBib has partnered with SweetSearch to create a seamless integration between the two platforms! Read on to learn how to enable SweetSearch in your EasyBib School Edition or Library Edition account.Read More
