Which version should I watch?

If you are on campus or have a high speed connection, we recommend watching the high quality streaming version. If you experience delayed buffering (a spinning disc indicating the stream is trying to catch up) you can pause the video, let it stream a few minutes and then watch it uninterrupted. Or you can choose the low quality streaming video.

This video was produced by the University of Mississippi Libraries, the Information Literacy Committee and the General Education Committee. Everyone appearing in the video is part of the University community; faculty, students and staff. All students appearing in the video were volunteers and have not actually been accused of academic dishonesty in any way.
