A great video for teaching students about library research and citations

Here's a great teaching tool that our good buddy at the Law Librarian Blog, Joe Hodnicki, suggests should be adapted to teaching students about legal research as well as citation form.  Prepared by the librarians at Cornell, it's called a "Research Minute" video that dissects for students bibliographic information to help them identify books versus compilations and other printed material.

I think Joe's idea is a great one - creating a similar video lesson(s) for the law library.  Any takers?

And if you like that video, it's just the tip of the iceberg.  Here's a website devoted to the best library videos on the web.  I don't have time to watch them all but if you find some that would translate well in the law library context, let me know and I'll link to them in future posts.

Hat tip to the Law Librarian Blog.

I am the scholarship dude.
