York librarian Scott Sheidlower and co-author Joshua Vossler provide advice and strategies on how to use humor to encourage student learning during librarian-led instruction sessions. From a review in the Colorado Libraries journal: “Vossler and Sheidlower focus on ways to make library instruction sessions interesting. … Recommended for academic and school instruction librarians who are looking for a new way to breathe life into what can sometimes be a monotonous and repetitive presentation. “ Humor and information literacy was also selected for the “Books to check out” column of Computers in Libraries, in October 2011.
