Ragains, Patrick
Communications in Information Literacy, v7 n1 p4-8 2013
In this column, the author discusses a lesson in the credit-bearing information literacy course for honors undergraduates at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). The lesson comes last in a unit including resource instruction, search practice, and culminating in the reading and evaluation of a scholarly work. The course, Honors 235: Research in the Information Age, is a one-credit elective in UNR's Honors Program. It is designed to introduce students to general research concepts, as well as search processes, information sources, and research management tools needed to conduct a thorough literature review for a senior thesis in their discipline.
