FUNQs….How many do you have??

FUNQ= Frequently UNasked Question (by students) as well as Frequently UNanswered  Question (by faculty)  plague not only the student and teacher, but also the people that surround them.  One topic in particular that librarians wish didn’t fall under this category: What is a primary source?

Students either have no clue what this is and are afraid and embarrassed to ask or they only know the simplistic definition from grade school.  Teachers often teach about a subject and how it relates but rarely get into how the materials are verified.

One librarian blogs about this issue and gives some poignant insight.
