ELIS Understanding Expertise

In this video, we start to think about “expertise” and how that affects how we conduct searches and use information in our increasingly digital lives. This is the third video in the Everyday Life Information Seeking Series.

The Understanding Expertise video for the ELIS series

You can use the comment section to reflect on the following questions:

  1. What level of expertise or knowledge do you have about your community or your information need? (e.g. are you a beginner, intermediate, or an expert?)
  2. Think about a Google search you might conduct about your community or information need. What does that search look like?

Once you are finished with this post you can continue to the next post in the series which explores the first part of the C.R.A.P. Test, Currency which can be found here.
