Ball State Libraries' Videos Give Tips on Research How-to’s

A creative and interesting set of videos was created by the University Libraries’ Information Services Librarians in order to help students learn to use library resources more efficiently.

“The videos are a unique way to assist students. They are short and informative, but also meant to be fun,” said Lisa Barnett, Instructional Services Librarian.

The short streaming video clips are located on the University Libraries’ web site and cover topics such as locating materials determining whether an article is scholarly or popular and deciding which web sites are trustworthy sources of information
