Designing online information literacy games students want to play by Karen Markey( Book )
7 editions published in 2014 in 3 languages and held by 183 libraries worldwide
Designing Online Information Literacy Games Students Want to Play sets the record straight with regard to the promise of games for motivating and teaching students in educational environments. The authors draw on their experience designing the BiblioBouts information literacy game, deploying it in dozens of college classrooms across the country, and evaluating its effectiveness for teaching students how to conduct library research. The multi-modal evaluation of BiblioBouts involved qualitative and quantitative data collection methods and analyses. Drawing on the evaluation, the authors describe how students played this particular information literacy game and make recommendations for the design of future information literacy games. You'll learn how the game's design evolved in response to student input and how students played the game including their attitudes about playing games to develop information literacy skills and concepts specifically and playing educational games generally. The authors describe how students benefited as a result of playing the game. Drawing from their own first-hand experience, research, and networking, the authors feature best practices that educators and game designers in LIS specifically and other educational fields generally need to know so that they build classroom games that students want to play. Best practices topics covered include pre-game instruction, rewards, feedback, the ability to review/change actions, ideal timing, and more. The final section of the book covers important concepts for future information literacy game design. - Publisher

Representing the query as input to the search system. 6. Conducting the search and responding strategically. 7. Displaying retrievals, assessing them, and responding tactically. Online Searching contains numerous figures to illustrate complex concepts, and the e-book features enhanced video content.

ONTAP : online training and practice manual for ERIC data base searchers by Karen Markey( Book )
11 editions published between 1978 and 1981 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
This self-improvement manual developed for experienced online searchers presents and discusses several alternative search strategies and their appropriate use to achieve the desired outcome. The manual is divided into two parts: (1) an eight step model of the total search process emphasizing how the decision of the information professional affects retrieval results and search objectives at each step of the search process; and (2) introduction to DIALOG's ontap file and self-improvement exercises with search formulations and explanations selected from the questions stored in the ontap file. Each exercise falls within the scope of interest of one of the 16 eric Clearinghouses. The ontap file is a subset of the eric data base consisting of rie and cije citations for the 1975 eric file and 29 simple, moderate, or difficult search questions with answer sets. It was developed to allow searchers to evaluate their output by computing recall and precision scores of their results with the results of a "perfect search" or answer set. The appendices include 13 search save formulations of common search facets for "population level" and "tools" which can be accessed and exchanged between dialog workspaces by using the procedures that are outlined, and a comprehensive guide to DIALOG's eric data bases.

Research report on analytical review of catalog use studies by Karen Markey( Book )
8 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
An extensive body of library literature addresses the area of card catalog use. This review takes a critical approach in summarizing and evaluating the methods and scope of catalog use studies. Emphasis is upon the subject approach to card catalog searching. Subject access is defined herein; however, the process of subject searching, described repeatedly in library literature, has been based upon common sense understanding rather than systematic observations. The findings of the catalog use studies are classified into: (1) generalizations on the physical format of the catalog, information found on cards, catalog searchers' educational level or area of expertise, and reference assistance; (2) generalizations specific to subject searches, user characteristics, and the physical structure of the catalog; and (3) generalizations specific to the known-item searches and nonstandard information, failure at the catalog, author-title information. The major reviews of catalog use studies and their methods also are covered
