Es un buen ejemplo a seguir para la realización de presentaciones similares. Cuesta un poco su generalización porque tiene muchos ejemplos específicos de una determinada biblioteca.

La interacción está dada a través de un Quizz de 31 preguntas. Algunas de ellas pueden ser tomadas de ejemplo para productos similares.

This somewhat interactive PPT includes information about different library resources, and explains how to choose and evaluate them based on the information need. The information literacy definition is based on a British standard. Most of the content about locating resources is specific to the Everett library, and as the information is somewhat dated, cannot be easily generalized. The end quiz also largely pertains to that one library. The PPT is easy to navigate, and the images are appropriate. Sometimes the screen dumps are hard to read. This PPT would normally be used to orient students to library resources; however, its applicability is severely limited because of its specificity to Everett's resources.
