Most students faced with writing a research paper probably start at the same place, Google. Here is a guide that will save students from fruitless, random web searching. The authors, one formerly an academic librarian who now teaches college English, and the other coauthor of Going Beyond Google, provide up to date guidance for using traditional and online sources. Students will learn to select a topic, effectively find and evaluate the best information in both print and electronic formats, and produce accurate and complete citations based on current versions of important styles guides and web resources. Each chapter includes exercises that reinforce the instruction and guidance. A companion website accompanies this new edition to give readers hot links for all of the book's URLs, and supplementary materials including additional exercises and examples that help clarify how to apply the techniques. This book is filled with real world examples, illustrative diagrams, and screen shots, and is a guide for anyone aspiring to write an excellent research paper on their own, or following this text in a research skills or information literacy course.
