Information Literacy Framework for Students

Introduction to Information Literacy

We have access to an incredible amount of information. Students often encounter the negative aspects of this when approaching research. They frequently become lost in a sea of sources about a potentially limitless number of topics, or stuck with a group of sources that are not relevant to a topic/project. Research is a process, and is composed of a series of steps rather than one action. This guide will walk you through some of the common steps in a research process. After completing this guide, you will be prepared to begin conducting preliminary research in your courses as Athens State University.
