Abstract
Librarians' understanding of the learning styles of upcoming generations of students is crucial to academic success. Multimedia is a key component in these new learning styles. Academic libraries are offering more support to faculty and students alike in the multimedia arena. The authors' research includes two distinct aspects of access, use, and production of multimedia in academic assignments. Part 1 of this article discusses research that included analysis of how faculty are incorporating multimedia into class assignments. Pan 2 contains an annotated webliography with a selection of free multimedia search engines and content sites. The title is suggested by the Singingfish website, which is a search engine for audio and video content on the Internet. Its quirky name seems a fitting one to borrow for discussion of this brave new multimedia world.
