Searching as Information Literacy Unpacking the ACRL Frame of Searching As Strategic Exploration

Butler, Leigh-Ann; Harper, Lina; Lobel , Andrea

Searching as Information Literacy Unpacking the ACRL Frame of Searching As Strategic Exploration is an OER that includes a podcast, blog and associated exercise. Three University of Ottawa librarians are interviewed on search challenges they have encountered and their proposed search strategies as it relates to the ACRL framework: Searching as Strategic Exploration. Although it is possible to present an analysis of search strategies solely in writing or in traditional in-personal presentations, newer media such as podcasts allow for innovative delivery of the material in a more immediate and visceral way. That is, the audience is able to hear and receive the information directly from the experts themselves, in their own words. A podcast is also able to convey the aural nuance of a given speaker in a way that conventional scholarly approaches can’t quite duplicate. We believe that a podcast with real librarians’ voices speaking to and guiding students about exploratory searching, using recent, real-life examples, represents a dynamic, useful, engaging and relevant educational tool for our target audience - MLIS, MIS students.
