The College Student's Research Companion.
Quaratiello, Arlene Rodda
This guide was specifically designed to help students understand and navigate the wealth of information available today. This book guides students through the specifics of finding, using and evaluating information in print, electronic, and multimedia formats. Designed for individual or classroom library instruction use, it covers the entire research process--from topic selection to evaluation and citation. Planning a research strategy; using online catalogs; understanding library organization; utilizing reference books, periodicals, CD-ROMs and online databases; and searching and downloading information from the Internet are covered. The focus is on teaching students to select sources regardless of their format--a technique that will make the research process more productive, result in a higher quality better research paper, and ultimately help create an information literate adult.
