Overview

Conducting research is an important aspect of any college essay or research project. In today's Digital Age, with more information ready at our fingertips than ever before, research skills are essential for quickly sorting the credible news stories from the fake. Whether we're researching online or from libraries, archives, or databases - unfortunately, we can't always believe everything we read.

In this course, Elsa Loftis, Director of Library Services at the Oregon College of Art and Craft, shares her expertise on research so we can become better at telling the facts from fiction. Here, you can discover how to incorporate keywords and special Boolean data terms, search for resources beyond Google, and correctly write citations to avoid plagiarism.
