Research in Cryptozoology
I have always found talking about crytozoological issues (monsters) a fun way to teach critical thinking skills and library research skills to college students. It doesn't matter if Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, etc. exist or not to be successful in doing this. I hope they do exist but regardless I can use examples from this field to teach web evaluation, database searching, and how to use multiple sources to search an interdisciplinary topic. As such, I put up a new LibGuide today Research in Cryptozoology. I hope others find it helpful.
