Ball State Librarians Develop Video Clips to Provide Students with Tips on Research Techniques

A creative and interesting set of videos was created by Ball State 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, determine whether an article is scholarly or popular and deciding which web sites are trustworthy sources of information.

Theatre majors Natalie Sallee, Sean Riggs, Nicole Hansel, Jamie Boalbey, Lauren Sheffield, Josh Carver, and Kevin Anderson acted in the videos. Prof. Robert Habich, Department of English, also made a special appearance. Thanks to the production staff at Teleplex for their assistance. View the videos at
