Y Search

A website produced by library instructors at Brigham Young University for use in blended learning instruction with First-Year Writing (FYW) classes. Contains five modules: background research, topic development, search strategies, source evaluation, and critical reading. Each module includes two embedded videos. Librarians wanted these videos to be as brief as possible, so each video is limited to two minutes. The videos are followed by a suggested homework assignment students complete before coming to class, an interactive learning tool where students can practice concepts taught in the video tutorials, and extra links to more video tutorials (not produced by BYU) that provide more instruction on a given topic.
