LIB1201 Research & Documentation for the Information Age D950

LIB1201 Research & Documentation for the Information Age D950

This course explores research and documentation for all media formats including text, images, sound, and multimedia. Students will explore information issues, especially in terms of their relevance today: how information is produced and organized in both traditional and emerging media, how information access is affected by political, economic and cultural factors, and the ethics of information use. Students will also acquire the practical skills of locating information sources in a variety of media and formats, critical evaluation of sources, and documentation and citation of traditional and emerging media and technologies. Students will apply what they learn to create and present research and documentation projects.

New and improved citation/reference manager omega

Our new citation tool will be able to give recommendations based on keywords in the citation and reference manager. Our tool will track citations, allowing students to do better research based on a sliding scale that rates the relevance of the of the article based on the amount of stars previous students gave the article, book, or journal paper. (Similar to a yelp review). For example if a 1000 people reviewed a journal article, and more than half believed it was a good source, our tool could recommend future students to use that source relevant to that topic, and give you other article options. (A drop down box will appear when you type in keywords in the citation manger). Our tool will also use plug-ins, to merge two different platforms. A wizard will do a walk thru on the citation manger to show the student how to use the tool on different platforms (ex. Firefox, Mozilla, Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer).
