Module 1 : Selecting
Select: to choose in preference because of special quality or value.

While in college you will need to research information for your papers and other assignments. Once you graduate you will most likely continue to research to make informed decisions in your job and your community. The skills you have and continue to develop will make the process of finding information for your assignments, your work and your life much easier.

The combined resources of your library and the Internet create an almost endless amount of information available to you. With all of these choices, where do you find the answers?

This module will focus on the different sources of information, where to find these sources, and how to choose the best ones for your research. It should take you approximately 30 minutes to complete.
