  • The Problem
    • Information in the early 21st century is characterized by:
      • overabundance,
      • unequal distribution,
      • a strong tendency to triviality, and
      • increasing concerns about credibility.
    • From: Sayers, R. (2006). Principles of awareness raising for information literacy. Bangkok: UNESCO. Retrieved on Nov. 17, 2006 from http://portal.unesco.org/ci/en/ev.php-URL_ID=23312&URL_DO=DO_TOPIC&URL_SECTION=201.html

    • Fully-automated

      • French ver . - http://www.google.ca/webhp?hl=fr&ned=ca&tab=nw&q=
      • Translation tools : http://www.google.ca/language_tools
  • Effective Search Strategies
    • Search strategy
      • Precision (e.g. Be specific!)
      • Use multiple terms to describe concepts
    • Use Advanced search screens
      • Boolean logic
      • Limiting options
    • Use of Help screens
      • Understand how the tool is processing your query
  • Custom Search Engines
    • Mrs Gray's Research Site for Kids
      • A Chicago-based computer science teacher’s Custom Search Engine limited to sites for her middle school students
    • Expanding Your Horizons
      • Helps nurture girls' interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
    • See: http://google.com/coop/cse/examples/Educators
  • Tools: Meta-Search Engines
    • Search multiple databases in one query
    • Results displayed in one listing
    • Save time because only one search is performed
    • Examples:
      • Clusty - http: //clusty .com/
      • Dogpile - http://www.dogpile.com/
      • PureVideo - http://www.purevideo.com/
  • The Strategy in a Nutshell
    • Use reference-type information (found through Directories) to gain background info on a topic.
    • Perform a keyword search on an Engine to gather more in-depth info :
      • Determine the key concepts with your topic
      • Plan a search strategy and conduct your search
      • Scan the URL and watch the top level domain name.
      • Locate sites with current, objective, accurate information
      • Try to use sites that have an author and a date
    • Integrate the information found into your project.
  • If Still in Doubt…..
    • … ..Check out Noodle Tools
      • See: http://www. noodletools .com/debbie/literacies/information/5locate/adviceengine.html
  • Evaluating the Information
    • 5 Ws:
      • Who is the source of the info?
      • What are you getting?
      • When was the site (or doc) created?
      • Where is the site from?
      • Why are you here?

  • Using the Information
    • Quoting: Exact copy or original, must use quotation marks. Must reference page/paragraph number
    • The better method is to:
    • Paraphrase: Reinstate in your own words the original ideas; no quotes necessary
      • Facts or ideas are properly integrated and flow with the writing style of the researcher
    • In either case you must acknowledge the source.
  • Defining Plagiarism
    • Retrieved Aug. 20, 2006 from the University of Hawaii Kapi'olani Community College Library website at: http://library.kcc.hawaii.edu/main/instruction_info/plagiarism1.html
    • Plagiarism is using someone else’s words or ideas without acknowledging the source.
  • Preventing plagiarism
    • When using information (this includes text, images, photographs, music, video clips and computer software) from the web one must acknowledge the source!
    • See: Copyright Matters! Prepared by Council of Ministers of Education. Available: http://www.cmec.ca/copyright/matters/indexe.stm
    • “ Students are required to cite materials used regardless of source, as a matter of appropriate use of works created by others. The education amendment [to Bill C-60] is nonetheless necessary to permit students to legally reproduce Internet materials in assignments, projects, and presentations and to forward these to their teachers, other students, and parents. Such educational activities are currently a violation of the Copyright Act.”
  • Acknowledging the Source
    • Use of a punctuation style
      • Chicago Manual, Turabian, APA, MLA
    • Author. Date. Title. Date accessed. URL.
      • Sometimes the author is an organization
      • Include date of site, date the site was revised AND the date you visited the site
