Abstract

This project investigates the potential usage of Podcasts by students and faculty at Worcester Polytechnic Institute to teach students college-level research methods. We interviewed students about research methods and study habits. We find that students have little initial interest in information literacy topics, but when exposed to them understand their value to support their curriculum. We developed recommendations for the Gordon Library to incorporate Podcasts into its information literacy programs.
