Choosing the Proper Resources: Info Research 101 Tutorial

A resource for students preparing to write essays, this site presents the essential characteristics of different types of information sources, from books and peer-reviewed journals to newspapers and Web sites. The site's structure allows students to freely move back and forth throughout, so they may read about the nature of various information sources, take a six-question interactive quiz to check their comprehension, and view a timeline of a current event information cycle, in any order and as many times as they wish. This digital learning object has been chosen by the CSU ICT/Information Literacy Learning Objects Initiative due to its quality and minimal conformity to the committee’s criteria.
