The Importance of Search as Intertextual Practice for Undergraduate Research
Bodemer, Brett B.
College & Research Libraries, v73 n4 p336-348 Jul 2012
By first reassessing the role of search in the literacy event of the lower division undergraduate paper, this article argues that searching is not a lower-order mental activity but a concurrent, integral component of the research-writing process. This conclusion has large implications for information literacy instructional design, and several practical applications to further support undergraduate research-writing are outlined.
