Information Literacy Framework for Students: Assignments

Locate and Summarize a Source

Using the Athens State Information Literacy Framework for Students (Identify to Present), locate 1 source that is relevant to your personal and professional interests. After locating the source, present a citation in MLA/APA/Turabian. Once you have provided the citation, produce a short (300 word) summary of the article. Summaries should clarify and explain important points of an article, not present arguments or opinions. Try to explain the author(s) contribution and any other key points. A sample article citation and summary is located below.
