How do you teach students to troll through everything they are finding --
specifically to find and identify the specific item they are looking for?

Not-So-Hypothetical Class Assignment:
Each table will work together as a team to search through our scientific research databases, and each team will be assigned to find one of the following:
- Primary scientific article
- Secondary scientific article
- Conference proceeding
Once you have found your paper/proceeding/article, each team will review the article and - having designated a table spokesperson - will provide a brief summary of their chosen item. In addition, as work outside of this library session, each student will individually submit a brief written critique of their found work, guidelines for which are covered within the associated class LibGuide.
Things to remember:
- your chosen piece should not be from WebMD or somewhere similar - it should be found via the resources covered in today's class, all of which are linked within the associated class LibGuide
- you should cite everything that you use in your critique, as you need to have at least 5 backing sources to support your critique
