The 21st Century Digital Student: Google Books as a Tool in Promoting Undergraduate Research in the Humanities
Karpenko, Lara; Dietz, Lauri
Journal of Effective Teaching, v13 n1 p89-106 2013
In this article, we contend that publically available, mass digitization projects, such as Google Books, present faculty, regardless of their specific institutional context, with an exciting opportunity to promote meaningful undergraduate research in the humanities. By providing a classroom case study and by proposing an institutional model, we suggest that the Google Books archive can be a powerful tool in helping to establish research in the humanities as a regular and expected component of the undergraduate experience.
