Presentation: Information Retrieval in Environmental Science

How do search systems and users within the field of environmental science work together to construct queries and identify relevant results? This presentation presents my recommendations for teaching search skills to undergraduates who are entering the field of environmental science, and for ways to improve information retrieval systems for users in this field.

the word "speed" bumps up against the word "quality"

Video Tutorial

This library tutorial helps learners differentiate between stages in scholarly publishing including preprint, postprint, and ahead-of-print. It highlights tensions between the potential to speed up science offered by preprint servers and the quality assured through the peer-review process. I produced and edited the tutorial using Reaper, iMovie, and Canva.
