The video provides a good overview of the information cycle and the topic is well documented. Students will relate to the topic and find it interesting. I prefer videos that include options to stop and restart the content and also to know the duration.

Found this useful with both one-shot and multi-session library instruction. Serves as model for several other useful resources: http://media.lib.ecu.edu/reference/howdoi/display.cfm?id=69.0 http://guides.lib.msu.edu/link.phtml?page_id=1047&element_id=21168 http://faculty.evansville.edu/ma35/ipse2006.pps http://campus.queens.edu/everett/M2.html The tool is widely cited as an exemplary infolit tutorial.

Technical Remarks:

Superior production. Lengthy but so well developed using parsed segments could be done smoothly.
Used in course? Yes
Time spent reviewing site: Over 2 hrs during several visits.
