Materials from Library Orientation

-Bibliographies take a lot of time, and attention-to-detail which can be  intimidating and frustrating

-Bibliographies appear at the end of the paper, but conversely, they should be the FIRST part of the paper you work on.

-If you keep an organized and annotated bibliography (and this does not have to be a stressful, my-instructor-will-grade-this process) you can save yourself an enormous amount of time and effort. Start now, and you will wonder why you ever wrote a paper without doing this.

Always evaluate your resources, regardless of format, and remember:








Remember that information literacy is a process just like regular literacy- the same way that you developed your vocabulary by using a dictionary to look up the meaning of new words, it's up to you to determine if you are looking at a reliable resource.
