Ember Stevens - How to Impress a Librarian - How to teach Boolean Operators

Here's a interesting talk about Boolean Operators by Librarin Ember Stevens at a non-library event.


Personally I found it pretty entertaining. In a day and age where some begin to doubt the need to teach boolean operators to undergraduates (see here), it is nice to see Boolean operators being explained in a entertaining way. 

Have you done it better or seen it done better? How do you teach Boolean Operators?


I'm a little late here, but thank you for the call-out! I had a lot of fun at this event, and hopefully people learned a little as well. I'd love to know what other techniques librarians and other industry professionals are using to teach Boolean Operators.
