    From San Jose State University, this interactive page lets you enter the due date for an assignment and then gives you particular dates for the different stages of your research. A great time-management tool.

  • How do I?
    This tutorial from the University of Washington offers information on the basics of research with some online quizzes included.

  • The Information Cycle
    A description of how the information cycle relates to the production of different types of materials (the internet, newspapers, magazines, journals, and books) based on the Columbine school shootings in Littleton, CO. This event may be a little before your time, but consider the information in light of 9/11 or the killings at the Boston Marathon in April 2013.

  • The Information Cycle
    Another explanation of the information cycle from the University of Washington, focused on the Japanese tsunami of 2011.

    Understanding the iterative process of the research process. Very well done.

I'm a scholar librarian with various concerns and interests. As a child of the 1960s, I maintain an annotated bibliography of important 1960s books at http://www.public.iastate.edu/~rjackson/webbibl.html. I also publish about Information Literacy and cognitive development. My interest in plagiarism grows out of my interest in information literacy.
