Usage de la documentation : quel impact sur la réussite des étudiants ? “Digital natives” need help understanding search. A report from Ethnographic Research in Illinois Academic Libraries documents research done on "digital native" college students to evaluate their skill with refining searches, evaluating search results, and navigating thorny questions of authority and trust in online sources.

“Digital natives” need help understanding search

The researchers concluded that despite their subjects' fluency with the technology, the mental models and critical thinking they brought to bear on search results had real problems: The prevalence of Google in student research is well-documented, but the Illinois researchers found something they did not expect: students were not very good at using Google.

They were basically clueless about the logic underlying how the search engine organizes and displays its results. Consequently, the students did not know how to build a search that would return good sources. (For instance, limiting a search to news articles, or querying specific databases such as Google Book Search or Google Scholar.)

Survey Finds Students Often Use Library Resources, But Not Services

In May 2013, Library Journal underwent a major server migration for its archived web content, which happened slightly sooner than originally expected. As a result, much of the content from 2004 to 2012 is currently unavailable to the public. However, this content has not been lost, and our web staff is in the process of converting these past articles for integration into the WordPress-based website you see here, which was launched in 2012.

Many of these older articles have already been restored, and more will continue to be restored on an ongoing basis as they are cleaned up. Ultimately, this migration will allow for greater discoverability of all archived LJ content, both on the website and across the Web in general. Keep in mind that the article you’re looking for may already have been restored to the new site.CLICK HERE TO SEARCH FOR IT BY TITLE (this link will open in a new browser).

Les jeunes ne savent pas utiliser le Web

The broad aims of the study are to gather and assess the available evidence to establish:whether or not, as a result of the digital transition and the vast range of information resources being digitally created, young people, the `Google generation’, are searching for and researching content in new ways and whether this is likely to shape their future behaviour as mature researchers? Whether or not new ways of researching content will prove to be any different from the ways that existing researchers and scholars carry out their work?

Et il devient très difficile, sinon impossible, d’en faire un suivi exhaustif. Aussi faut-il saluer particulièrement les « méta-études », fondées sur des états de l’art de la littérature et des synthèses de travaux. En voici trois, découvertes ces dernières semaines, toutes trois évidemment anglo-saxonnes (l’analyse d’un grand nombre de travaux de recherche sur les usagers et les pratiques informationnelles confirme l’écrasante supériorité des Anglais et des Américains dans ce domaine ; mais ceci est un autre sujet !) , de grande ampleur et produites par l’incontournable JISC. Cette importante étude, fondée pour partie sur une revue de la littérature et une synthèse des travaux menés depuis trente ans sur les comportements informationnels des jeunes, visait deux grands objectifs : La deuxième synthèse à signaler est sortie très récemment.
