Transcript

  • 1. Making use of Online Resources for Research
  • 2. Types of Research Resources
  • 3. Online Research freedom or chaos
  • 4. Caution - It must be used carefully and critically ‘as anything goes on internet’ without screening or peer review - No agreed upon standard ways of identifying subjects or for cross references
  • 5. The Diversity of Information Information is a Commodity Available in Many Flavors: Information Exists on a Continuum of Reliability and Quality Are you looking for: Facts, opinions, stories, interpretations, statistics?
  • 6. Purposes • • • • Inform Persuade Sell to present a viewpoint to create or change an attitude or belief
  • 7. Dos and Don’ts • Don't rely exclusively on Net resources • Narrow your research topic before logging on • Know your subject directories and search engines • Keep a detailed record of sites you visit and the sites you use • Double-check all URLs that you put in your paper
  • 8. Guidelines for evaluating specific resources
  • 9. Look for: • Authority • Affiliation • Audience Level • Currency • Content • Validity
  • 10. Authority – Who is the author? – Is the author's name given? – Are her/his qualifications specified? – Is there a link to information about her/his and her/his position? – Is there a way to contact her/his (an address or a "Mailto" link)? – Have you heard of her/him elsewhere (in class, or cited in your course text or in Library material)? – Has the author written elsewhere on this topic?
  • 11. Affiliation - Who is the sponsor of the Web site? - Is the author affiliated with a reputable institution or organization? - Does the information reflect the views of the organization, or only of the author? If the sponsoring institution or organization is not clearly identified on the site, check the URL.
  • 12. Affiliation - It may contain the name of a university or the extension .edu, which is used by many educational institutions. - Government sites are identified by the extension .gov. - URLs containing .org are trickier, and require research: these are sites sponsored by non-profit organizations, some of which are reliable sources and some of which are very biased. - Sites with the .com extension should also be used with caution, because they have commercial or corporate sponsors who probably want to sell you something. - The extension ~NAME often means a personal Web page with no institutional backing; use such sites only if you have checked on the author's credibility in print sources.
  • 13. Audience Level -What audience is the Web site designed for? -- You want information at the college or research level. ---Don't use sites intended for elementary students or sites that are too technical for your needs.
  • 14. Currency - Is the Web site current? - Is the site dated? -Is the date of the most recent update given? - Generally speaking, Internet resources should be up-to-date; after all, getting the most current information is the main reason for using the Net for research in the first place. - Are all the links up-to-date and working? Broken links may mean the site is out-of-date; they're certainly a sign that it's not well-maintained.
  • 15. Content Reliability/Accuracy - Is the material on the Web site reliable and accurate? - Is the information factual, not opinion? - Can you verify the information in print sources? - Is the source of the information clearly stated, whether original research material or secondary material borrowed from elsewhere?
  • 16. Content Reliability/Accuracy - How valid is the research that is the source? - Does the material as presented have substance and depth? - Where arguments are given, are they based on strong evidence and good logic? - Is the author's point of view impartial and objective? - Is the author's language free of emotion and bias? - Is the site free of errors in spelling or grammar and other signs of carelessness in its presentation of the material? - Are additional electronic and print sources provided to complement or support the material on the Web site?
  • 17. Getting Started Screening Information Pre-evaluation
  • 18. Pre-evaluation Do you want - Facts Opinions Reasoned arguments Statistics Narratives Eyewitness reports Descriptions
  • 19. Solution: Select Sources Likely to be Reliable • • • • • • • INFOMINE Academic Info Google Bing Alta Vista Yahoo Search Engine Colossus International Directory of Search Engines
