UNIT 2 : ACCESSING INFORMATIO N EFFECTIVELY AND EF FICIENTLY WEEK 4 : ORGANIZATION OF INFO RMATION September 1 8 2012 Lecture outline: Lecture topics Research topics Keywords Subject headings Call numbers Research topics Start thinking about a research topic you will use to write an annotated bib on later in the course; can be something you are working on in another class Your topic will be a question that your research will answer; research will be your investigation Topic can be vague at this point (ex. teens & smoking) ; might be better to start vague Think about various aspects/angles on your topic o Legal: selling tobacco to minors; lawsuits against tobacco companies o o Cultural: are some teens more likely to smoke than others? (race, gender, SES) o Economic: increased health care costs to treat cancer and ot her diseases Keywords When you start to settle on a topic, write it out as a question in natural language.

Algerian civil war) o Groups similar works together helps you find related resources o ACTIVITY: Show LCSH Red Book How do I find subject headings? o o Search WorldCat (demo if time) o Subject tracing o ACTIVITY: Demo catalog search and trace subject headings (French Algerian war) Call numbers

UNIT 4 : USING INFORMATION EF FECTIVELY TO ACCOMPL ISH A SPECIFIC PURPO SE WEEK 1 1 : USING RESOURCES PROD UCTIVELY November 6 2012 LECTURE NOTES: Parts of an Annotation Short & sweet! 150 words. Qualifications of the author. Main purpose of text (1 3 short sentences). Relation to other works in the field. Standpoint/ bias of the author. Audience and reading level. Summary sentence. A paraphrase Your own rendition of essential information and ideas expressed by someone else, presented in a new form A legitimate way to borrow from a source. (Remember to cite!) A more detailed restatement than a summary, which focuses concisely on a single main idea. Why paraphrase? Prevents you from over quoting. Prevents you from plagiarizing accidentally. Helps you to grasp the full meaning of the original. How to Paraphrase Reread until you understand the original. Set original aside, then write your paraph rase. Compare your paraphrase with the original to make sure you got all the important points. Pick out striking phrases (use quotation marks). Note a citation with your paraphrase. Using Quotations Use sparingly. Highlight unique turns of phrase and terminology. Use to distinguish original from your own ideas. Skillfully blend quotations with your paraphrased material. (Takes practice!)
