Regardless of our varying institution, users, or teaching experience, librarians across the board are grappling with the question of how web-scale discovery tools are fundamentally changing the ways we teach students how to do research, evaluate information, and manage the research process.
This wiki compiles problems encountered when teaching with discovery tools and shares possible solutions developed at the LOEX 2013 conference in Nashville, TN. We hope that you find inspiration in the proposed teaching activities to address these problems, and contribute your own solutions to problems you have encountered.
