The Peer-Reviewed Instructional Materials Online (PRIMO) Committee of the Instruction Section of ACRL is pleased to announce that a new Site of the Month interview has been posted to our committee website.
May 2021 Site of the Month: Gopher Library Adventure a Choose your own Adventure e-book
Interview with: Lacie McMillin, Kat Nelsen, Kate Peterson
Interviewer: Marianne Myers
Project Description: The Gopher Library Adventure is a Choose Your Own Adventure-style e-book created in Pressbooks for use in the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities College of Liberal Arts First Year Experience courses and Orientation. Some examples of topics covered in the book are: differences between popular and scholarly articles, peer review, undergraduate research journal, using the Libraries Search, using Google, research guides, evaluating sources, undergraduate research, citing sources, streaming music databases, voting, Google Scholar, streaming video databases, and MORE! The book was used in place of instruction sessions for the First Year Experience course. We have mostly used it as a substitute for instruction sessions so far, but we can imagine that it would also be useful as a pre-work assignment.
The full interview is available here.
