Simultaneous Learning about Research and Filmmaking: Informed Learning and Research Guides
Shelley Woods and Kathleen Cummins
Christine Bruce has written extensively about informed learning. Informed learning is “using information, creatively and reflectively, in order to learn” (2008, Preface). Bruce writes about informed learning as it relates to information literacy. Librarians, working collaboratively with professors, often develop research guides to teach information literacy skills, and to organize and present program, course, assignment or topic specific resources. Research is essential to documentary filmmaking. This chapter is a case study that describes how the History of Non-Fiction Film research guide that we created aligns with the three principles and seven faces of informed learning.
Frontispiece illustration for Toni Morrison's "Beloved"
The frontispiece illustration in the Folio Society 2015 edition of Pulitzer Prize winning novel Beloved by Toni Morrison depicts characters Sethe and Paul D. Chosen by the Folio Society to illustrate their edition of the book, artist Joe Morse won Toni Morrison's personal approval with an "audition painting" that eventually became the frontispiece.
Joe Morse created nine full-page colour illustrations for Beloved and designed the cover illustration. The illustrations are watercolour on paper, finished using digital techniques.
