Welcome! In our session today, we are going to explore some ideas about information, doing research, and make friends with the library website. I will guide you through and am happy to answer questions now and in the future. Find me at jwhite15atuno.edu or 504-280-6548.
The world of information is enormous!
⇒ The bigger it gets, the better you have to learn to search for, find, and use it.
Our goals today are to practice:
--identifying what information is
--learning what criteria make a source of information reliable and beneficial
--learning new places to find reliable information at the UNO library
--asking questions about what you find to determine the reliability and benefits of that information
--using that information ethically in your work
Should you have questions, the library has answers for you! You can contact me at my coordinates above, you can call the Services desk at 504-280-6355 or chat with librarians online here: https://libguides.uno.edu/reference
Help is available. Don't waste your time being frustrated about not finding what you need or want in the library. We can help answer questions and get you going in the right direction!
