Any further questions?

 How do we critically analyze technology?

For example how do you 'read' a web page?

Publishing: Then and Now

  • Many years ago, publishing something that would be seen by a wide audience was extremely difficult--you needed to be approved by editors, publishers, etc


  • Nowadays, anyone can publish anything! And with relative ease!

Publishing: Then and Now

  • How do our present circumstances of being able to publish easily on the web change things?


  • How does this change the reliability of sources?

           What is Digital





What is Digital Scholarship?

Digital Scholarship

  • Making an argument in a digital form, with the use of digital technologies.
  • It is also: "the use of digital evidence, methods of inquiry, research, publication and preservation to achieve scholarly and research goals. Digital scholarship can encompass both scholarly communication using digital media and research on digital media".

Digital Scholarship by HC Students

What are some tools for Digital Scholarship?

  • Online communities-  iPL2, or the Internet Public Library, “is a public service organization and a learning/teaching environment. To date, thousands of students and volunteer library and information science professionals have been involved in answering reference questions"


  • Online forumsStack Overflow  is an example of an online forum for web programmers.


  • Advanced videoconferencingGoogleChat, service through a gmail account that allows multi-person meetings, screen sharing, picture, video and file sharing as well as chat functions all while on a video call. 

(iPL2 is still accessible but currently closed).


What is Digital Literacy?

  • Digital Literacy

What are some ways to increase your digital literacy?

  • Knowing more about the web
  • Collaborating with other students
  • Using digital mediums to form hypotheses and do research
  • Knowing basic search commands to tailor your searches to get the answers you want (ex. booleans, proximity operators, etc.)
  • Doing this program!

But what about Authority? 

  • Is this source objective? Does this source have authority? Why or Why not?

How do we evaluate digital resources and sources?
