Abstract

How the library better can support students to analyze and evaluate sources when using popular media platforms

Printed material is no longer the only source for information. The media landscape of today consists more and more of films, vlog and video. Despite this, printed sources are often the only referred to in the students' academic work. Umeå University Library conducted interviews and workshops with student groups from different disciplines. From this we learned that the library can play a crucial role to facilitate guidance to evaluate the reliability and credibility of films and how to cite different online sources. Together with HUMlab we aim to develop a new way of guiding the students in source criticism, both in technical and pedagogical aspects.
