Objectives

INFORMATION LITERACY LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of information literacy instruction, students should be able to:

  1. Identify appropriate library databases for specific research needs.
  2. Cite sources correctly in the appropriate documentation style.

Library Guide Helpful Tips!

STEP 1:

Review the information about the research process. Understanding this process will help you tremendously as you start working on your paper.

STEP 2:

Using keywords is the easiest way to track down appropriate sources. Use the Keywords page to learn how to identify and build strong keyword searches.

STEP 3:

The JSTOR database is your best friend for this project! Put your new knowledge of the research process and keywords to work as you search in JSTOR! On the JSTOR page you'll also see additional tools you can use that will help you with your search.

STEP 4:

Now that you have your sources, you need to cite them. This course uses CMoS, or Chicago. Because it uses footnotes, it looks and feels different that other citation styles you may have used., like APA or MLA. The Chicago page should help you understand those differences and cite your sources correctly!

STEP 5:

Complete the quick ASSESSMENT on the last tab. That helps us do a better job every time we teach. Thanks! And as always, contact me if you have any questions at all!
