Totally not what I was expecting, though interesting in an intellectual way. I can't say that anything shared is or would be applicable to my work. I thought there would be some aspects that would help me think about using a makerspace for my work - there wasn't. I think that was in part, because the talk was mis-represented. It was about his research; not about strategies for teaching and learning with makerspaces.

I learned of several ways to use the new interface's abilities, which will make research easier for me. I also had a few lingering questions about searching in general answered. It was an hour very well spent. I would recommend it to others.

This was very informative. I learned to use Google in different ways to enhance my searches, but I've also learned how Google operates (in terms of algorithms, pages changing, etc.), which I think is helpful to pass on to students. Good examples, moved along quickly. Thank you, Amanda!

This session was great intro to posing questions and creating an argument for "fair use" of previously published texts, images, etc. in class (and research). If there is some such thing, I would be interested in and "advanced" session at some point.

Having never attended a talk on fair use, this was very helpful. Leaders discussed well the criteria for determining fair use, and for documenting your intentions/use to show "good intent" or "good faith" if use were questioned legally. Also, I was not aware of Lib Guides that the library has on the subject, which provide reference material.

This was great. I learned about the application, about research, and how the technology works with different resources. It was particularly useful to learn how to use Proquest Flow with different resources. Presenting the material this way gave me micro and macro knowledge. Also, the instructor tailored the information to student need and abilities. Very cool.

Presenter was great. Learned a few things about my iPad, but much of it was beyond my needs.
