Wrapping up the semester

Once again, it has been a long time since I posted. Since my last post, we’ve been doing the normal LIBR 1101 material – plagiarism, searching in a couple of different databases, filter bubbles, copyright & Creative Commons, social media literacy, etc. While I’m constantly revising how I discuss those topics in class, they don’t […]
