Flow of Information
This site explains how information about an event is created, documented and disseminated within days of the event's occurrence to years after it happened and how researchers can find information on the event. The site demonstrates the flow of information, and thus the cycle of publication, by taking an event and following it forward as time progresses. Along the way, it explains the differences between popular magazines, newspapers, scholarly journals, books, and Web sites. Self tests are included along the way. The final page sums up all the previously discussed information with a table that includes a timeline, list of types of sources and links to suggestions where researchers can locate those sources. Quick, informative, effective and easy to use, with appealing graphics.
