  • Educational MissionTo help undergraduate students gain insight into the ways in which anthropologists conduct research and draw conclusionsTo improve information literacy of undergraduate anthropology students through use of structured yet unfiltered digital resources

  • E-Publishing MissionTo develop a digital library infrastructure that will store digital resources so that they can be used in flexible waysTo catalogue digital assets embedded within complex learning tools so that they can be used for broader research and/or teaching goals

  • Case 1:The Ethnographic ImaginationModules present digitized selections from ethnographers field notes, published work, video interview Students interpret a village census; explore stages of observation; compare ethnographers conclusionsAssignments include writing about path from field data to ethnographyFocus is on increasing students grasp of how anthropological knowledge is created

  • Case 2: Intro to South Asian CultureOnline syllabus that links to catalogued digital assets (primary texts, maps, photos, video)Teacher builds class assignments around these assets (response to specific questions, essays on readings, and full research paper)Increasing levels of interaction with library materials throughout the semester

  • Digital Teaching Tools and Research Library ResourcesFocus on the relationship between the closed world of the classroom and teaching tools, and the open world of the WebCan students explore freely the vast array of research tools available through the Web, while still having an appropriate level of guidance concerning how to select and evaluate the sources that they find?

  • Unlimited Information as Benefit or Obstacle to LearningHow do we make information meaningful to users with diverse skills and needs?Future work will explore how to find the right balance between directed and unfiltered presentation of digital teaching and research materials in electronic publications
