Wanted: Information Literacy Skills in a World of Google & Wikipedia

Description

Two years ago, it was estimated that over 500,000,000 GB of data is created online every 48 hours. To put that into perspective, it is the same amount of information we created from the dawn of civilization until 2003. Undoubtedly, this is a mind-bending number, but also totally believable, living in a world of Tweets, Pinning, Tumbling, status updates and instantaneous sharing. The amount of information that has already been indexed online and the amount that is being added everyday is enough to overwhelm even the sharpest of researchers. It is apparent that students do not have the research skills they need to tackle this issue, and many are lacking in basic information literacy skills. Join Emily Gover of EasyBib as she shares recent findings on the status of plagiarism, research methods and citation practices and cross-reference these results with data pulled and analyzed directly from EasyBib.
