Post-Apocalyptic Research

posted: 3.10.08 by Barclay Barrios

Most university libraries now have extensive electronic resources, but what other research tools are still in use and how can students use them?  Ask your students to imagine that a disaster has occurred (something as simple as the computers being down on campus).  How can they continue their research?  Does your library still have a card catalog?  How is it used?  At my institution, it turns out that no research can be done any more without computers, which provides an opportunity to discuss the role of technology in research.
