This user-friendly guide is ideal for students faced with writing their first assignment using the college library--and makes an ideal text for information literacy classes and workshops. Quaratiello covers everything students need to know about finding information in all formats, including Web searching skills. She begins with library organization basics, including using the OPAC, and moves through essential reference books, use of periodical indexes, CD-ROM databases in libraries, using online databases (including InfoTrac, EBSCOhost, and ingenta) for research, and how to find and assess information on the Internet. Substantial changes have been made to the chapters about Web searches and popular electronic resources. Quartiello's concise, breezy style has been proven to appeal to today's college students. This completely updated third edition is more useful and practical than ever as both a basic guide and text for information literacy instruction.
