Research Skills Poster
The sheer amount of information available can be intimidating to even the most skilled researchers. This poster, written by library instruction expert and author Monty L. McAdoo, provides step-by-step guidance, from understanding the stages of the research cycle to determining the kind of research to conduct. It will help you help students learn the difference between fact-finding and research, and why research is important. Students will appreciate the clear and concise language and eye-catching visuals, while teachers, faculty, and academic librarians will find it a valuable tool for information literacy.
