Librarians Google. Professors Google. Our students Google. So, how do we Google better? How do we help students find local news, editorials, government and raw data, archival collections, information on public companies, job descriptions, employment profiles, and even activist groups? The presentation will provide context, discussion, and examples for activities. The activities will be one-shot focused, but will also include examples for expansion into multi-session teaching. The tracked courses consisted of first-year students, unlikely to have used an academic library, with two or three page general topic assignments.
