BI on the War, anyone?

Stephen Mitchell of UC Riverside wrote me the other day to ask,

Do you know of academic libraries who have done BI on the War? We’re starting to talk about it and it occurred to me that someone has probably done a nice powerpoint somewhere that we could build on.

I asked him if I could share his question here, because I think it’s a good idea, and I wonder if anyone is pursuing it. I don’t know of anything along those lines myself. I think it’s a perfect topic for teaching all aspects of information literacy and making the ideas (and the library) as relevant as can be.

So please comment if you have done BI’s concerning the War or know of anyone who has.

Stephen followed up with this list of links that he is finding useful in preparing this BI, and I thought I might as well share it here:

  1. In 2003, Lisa Sloniowski and I organized an open discussion on the press coverage of the war in Iraq held at the Leddy Library, University of Windsor.

    To support this discussion, we also created a website of news sources on the Iraq invasion from both the mainstream and alternative press.
