The internet doesn’t lie!

wakeupI just started showing the Can’t lie on the internet commercial clip on YouTube during my library instruction sessions. It has been well received. I get some giggles, smiles, and laughs. I did have one student say he hated the commercial, but no other complaints. I discuss why instructors want students to use the library’s databases and books, and not the internet. I talk about how anyone can create information and there is no governing body regulating the internet. This is a good way to wake up the class. Playing a YouTube video or some other type of media always wakes up an 8am class!
