Objective #2: Develop Learning Objects for Digital Reference

The second objective involved the development of digital reference curricula and learning objects. To achieve this objective, the IPL team gathered or created presentations, exercises and assignments, videos, and syllabi related to digital reference. In addition, syllabi, class assignments, activities, and PowerPoint presentations were created by the faculty involved in the project as well as those utilized by participating instructors from other institutions.

A second component of this objective was to make these learning objects available to all LIS educators. To this end, we have posted the material here on the project website and also in the IPL Learning Community (http://ipl.ci.fsu.edu/community).

Materials are also available on MERLOT (http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=475898), a curricular sharing site for higher education.
