Publication Type: Abstract
Abstract: In this workshop, we examine the basic tools students need to engage in professional level, high quality research. In addition, we provide a research simulation that instructors can use or adapt for helping students move from topic selection to locating materials for their research from indexes, databases, and Internet sources. In particular, our presentation demonstrates how to apply information literacy competency standards set by the Association of College and Research Libraries to student research projects. Based on our research findings, we first discuss the theoretical foundations for supporting information literacy. Second, we describe and give examples of the types of information available for student research. Third, we provide detailed explanations of information search and retrieval systems currently available for student research projects. Fourth, we provide a simulation where participants work through the research and source retrieval process using computer technologies. Finally, we facilitate a discussion about incorporating information literacy into the course curriculum/syllabi.
