Senior school Biology research is keeping the library at Riccarton High School busy these days.
I’ve used Pecha Kucha (http://www.pecha-kucha.org/) as a presentation style to give the students a “fast and furious” introduction of how the library can support their research.
We’ve lost so much time in Christchurch with earthquakes and snow, there are major time constraints being  placed on us all.
It’s never been more appropriate to trial new ways of doing things!
Carrot Cluster (http://search.carrot2.org/stable/search) has proved a great replacement for now defunct
Google WonderWheel, I love the “more” function giving more and more sudivisons and categories.
There was even a FaceBook division for Stem Cells!
