Social Media, Learning & Libraries

Too often, professors think of research as books, journals, and libraries. Too often, students think of research as Google and Wikipedia. What happens when we use both? In this talk, Professor David Silver discusses student work and research from his courses in “green media.” In particular, Silver will discuss the vital role both libraries and social media play in student research in the 21st century.

This talk will take place in the second floor auditorium of D. H. Hill Library on Tuesday, April 9, at 3 p.m..

David Silver is an associate professor of media studies, environmental studies, and urban agriculture at the University of San Francisco. With his urban agriculture colleagues and students, Silver has been active in USF’s organic garden, the campus farm stand, and various food distribution projects within the City of San Francisco. He is currently on sabbatical researching the history of the farm at Black Mountain College.
