  • With just about anything and everything being available online, there is a greater need for having necessary search skills that can wade through the information to find credible sources.Your book defines information literacy as:“The ability to use information tools and information sources to address and answer problems.”The book goes on to say:An information literate person has the “ability to locate, evaluate, and use information effectively.”The American Library Association takes it a step further to say:“[An information literate person] is prepared for lifelong learning, because they can always find the information needed for any task or decision at hand.”******How many of you know everything there is to know about about any topic out there?****************How many of you think “I” know everything there is to know about any topic out there?***************How many of you would like to learn how to be able to find the answer to any question or any topic out there?*******Hopefully all of you! And that’s what we’re going to be learning in this course.
  • We will spend several weeks learning to search Google, learning to search our LRC databases for scholarly information, and learning to search the LRC catalog for books.
  • As you find your information, you will begin to evaluate it to make sure that you are finding credible information, as well as relevant information for your topic.
  • Harrison uses the APA manual of style. This is what we’ll be using to cite, and organize our information. You will also learn to use an online bookmarking tool to help you organize your info.
  • For this class, you will be communicating your information in the form of a references page. You will learn to format a title page using APA style, as well as formatting a proper references page. We are NOT writing a research paper though! Each of your sources will have summaries that you will write in your own words. These summaries will describe what the source is about and how it pertains to your topic – but that’s it…no paper! It’s all about the formatting.
