Finding Valuable Information in Many Different Places


Compile and organize at least 15 great information resources on a specific area of this discipline and write a brief, but useful, annotation as to authority, focus, currency, audience and usefulness. This annotated bibliography may include important guides, encyclopedias, listservs, library databases, public Internet databases, subscription journals, open-access journals, trade journals and relevant blogs. As an introduction explain the criteria you used to choose and organize the information sources.

How to:

Use library guides, bibliographies, faculty recommendations, reference books, Internet review sources like Librarian's Internet Index, the Scout Project and to determine the most important resources. Check with librarians for even more. You may want to open and collaborate online with a group using a social bookmarking utility or a wiki or a Google Docs account.
