Reference and instruction for data sources

Abstract:

Chapter three describes patron-librarian interactions related to numeric data. First it outlines the questions to consider when conducting a successful data reference interview. Second, it suggests approaches for incorporating numeric data concepts and products into the library’s information literacy program and gives suggestions for possible exercises. Finally, it briefly defines the concept of statistical literacy and the use of statistical data, and quantitative literacy in curriculum-integration efforts.
