Submitted by: Emily Mullins (Staff), Dec 12, 2012

This lesson is designed to engage students in the research process, and to conduct research in "academic research databases improve their search results by utilizing the library concept of authority control." The lesson itself is easy to follow and make sense once completed. Its goal is to make research and citing much more efficient and effective. There may need to be more information given based on what authority control actually means/implies. Perfect for the target audience.
