STEP 1: Discover the world of information

 

On an academic level, Neo should read wider than only one source on a given topic. His lecturer provided him with a list of sources to consult (this includes prescribed readings and recommended readings). In order for Neo to show to his lecturer that he understands the topic, he needs to use and apply a number of different readings. It is, therefore, best to know the differences between different sources.

At the end of this unit Neo will be able to:

  • Explain information sources
  • Determine different types of information sources for different purposes
  • Determine where and how to find information sources in the library
