I see many lost and confused students in my role as a reference and instruction librarian. According to a study done and reported on by Project Information Literacy, 84% of students find that the most difficult part of the process is getting started.
New students in particular are surprised by the length of time it takes to properly research a topic and I’m always looking for ways to help these students understand that this is normal. I recently created the following infographic to use at my university and have had positive feedback from students and faculty alike. Students really respond to the visual impact of infographics. Do you use infographics in your teaching or library?
