This two-hour live online class explores 20 science information web pages librarians use.

Accurate answers to tough science questions can be difficult to find. In this two-hour online class, students will explore 20 science information web pages librarians use to find answers to questions like, “Where can I find some ideas for my science fair project?” and, “Where can I find spectral data for organic compounds?” Students will then have the opportunity to explore science reference resources further in an after-class exercise.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this class students will be able to:

Identify quality science reference sites
Use science resources to answer specific questions
Assist patrons in using science resources to find answers to questions more effectively
