A Student's Guide to Effective Library Research.
Wesley, Threasa L.
Designed to introduce the college student to library research and information use skills, this guide begins with an initial survey of the topic and progresses to how to write a report. It is divided into the following sections: (1) Introduction to Library Research; (2) Analyzing Your Subject and Beginning Your Research Plan; (3) Gathering Information Sources (e.g., determining appropriate research guides, choosing among available information sources, using library catalogs, boolean searches, using indexes, and locating sources not owned by the library); (4) Reading and Analyzing Information Sources (e.g., noting frames of reference, the importance of questioning sources); (5) Reporting Your Research (e.g., formulating the thesis, developing the report, and information research and communication skills); and (6) Functioning in an Information Based Society. Worksheets accompany several of the sections. (MAB)
