Integrating Information Technology Into The Liberal Arts Curriculum Using Network Technology
Project Number Two – 1992
An automated library system, a campus-wide network system, and direct faculty access to off-campus online search services, is used to teach information literacy at Drew University. Biology students in lower level classes are introduced to bibliographic search concepts using locally-mounted databases accessible both in class and from their dorm rooms via the campus network. Advanced instruction is provided in upper level biology courses by utilizing the more extensive databases of an off-campus information service. Biology faculty use their knowledge and experience in direct supervison of student searching. The flexibility of the system enables faculty in other disciplines to tailor bibliographic instruction to suit their particular needs.
